WOWW - Working on What Works

WOWW is a whole class approach to improving classroom behaviour, by focusing on positive praise.

It’s one of our favourites – because it really works!


A WOWW coach will visit your class for an hour a week over 6 weeks, working with teachers and the whole class to set behaviour targets. These targets are scaled and reviewed and discussed in weekly email communications with the class teacher. A final report with all ratings and progress will sent at the end of the 6 weeks.

All Ages
