    Abstract

    This dissertation explores the management of behaviour within the primary classroom of children aged five to seven, focusing on the concept of appropriate behaviour, external influences on a child’s conduct and finally approaches to behaviour management. Within this there is reference to Piaget, Vygotsky, Bandura, and specific focus on Kohlberg’s theory of moral development in addition to Carl Rogers’ theory of unconditional positive regard.
    Consideration is given to the methods underlying behaviour, examining models such as Steiner schools and Michael Gove’s recently suggested method of rigid rule enforcement. Areas covered include the definition of appropriate behaviour and the acquisition of this in the context of school, including the influence of parents, teachers, peers and the media with regard to a sense of belonging, acceptance and self-esteem. Finally the current government approach to discipline within education is contrasted with other models in relation to a child’s social, emotional and moral development.
