The Behaviour Manual – An Educator’s Guidebook offers over 100 strategies, approaches and teaching methods that will help any school, leader, middle leader, teacher, ECT or ITT to pro-actively lead on behaviour. It has been designed to help the entire profession and anyone at any level and all ranges of experience. 

The book is divided into three broad sections. Section one examines the role of the Mothership (the school) and the role that leaders at any level can play.mSection two looks at the role of the Satellites (the key areas that make up the school) and the integral role that middle leaders play. The final section looks at the micro level, focusing on the role that teachers play and offers a plethora of approaches teachers can employ. 

This book is deliberately written to help, to offer support, to offer advice and there is, bluntly, no waffle, no padding and no fluff. If you want a book that you can pick up, easily read and digest a key approach or strategy in less than 5-10 minutes then this is for you. 

About the Author 

Sam Strickland began his teaching career as a history teacher in Bedfordshire, having completed his PGCE in secondary history at the University of Cambridge. His career quickly accelerated, becoming a head of history and classics.

He then moved on to become a lead professional and worked for a SCITT Consortium. Sam became an assistant head where he had responsibility for the sixth form and led a post 16 consortium arrangement.

He then served as a vice principal, where he directly oversaw student care, the sixth form, curriculum and behaviour and served as the safeguarding lead for an entire trust. Sam also served as a lead facilitator for NPQSL.

In 2015 he served as an associate principal, with GCSE and A Level results under his tenure, receiving commendation from the DfE, Nick Gibb and the SSAT.

Sam is now the principal of a large all-through school and has helped to guide its GCSE results from the bottom 20% nationally to the top 20% and A Level outcomes to the top 5% nationally. His books, Education Exposed and Education Exposed 2, were published by John Catt in 2020.
