In ‘Boys Don’t Try?’ Matt Pinkett and Mark Roberts directly link boys’ relative educational underachievement to mistaken attempts to aspire to an “outdated, but nonetheless widespread idea” about what it means to be a “real man” and “a brand of masculinity that leaves many boys floundering”.
Hear Mark speak in a honest, human and reflective way, drawing on his own journey as a student, teacher and leader, discussing how we can start to rethink this damaging masculinity in schools.

Mark has just finished a new book specifically about behaviour so will be giving us a sneak preview of the content!

Sharing an insight into his brand new book for Routledge: ‘Inclusion: a principled guide for Early Career Teachers’ Des will consider the reasons behind student behaviours.

“Behaviour is like the tip of an iceberg, with the reasons for the behaviour below the surface of the water. SEND and other factors are issues below the surface which are the ultimate cause or explanation for a behaviour. Language misunderstanding, cultural differences, sensory issues can all contribute to frustration, anger or fear in the child.”
