Creating Positive Outcomes in Primary Schools


Parentshop’s training solutions help you make a real difference to the lives of children, parents and
primary school staff by reducing the effects of students’ and staff behavioural issues. 

Here are four powerful ways we support you to improve behaviour in primary schools with a ‘whole of school’ approach.

We teach you how to manage behaviour issues

Primary school staff are often first to identify children’s behavioural and emotional support needs. They are integral in supporting parents to understand and address them. Research shows that children who can control their impulses do better in academic and social situations. School staff and parents can easily learn to coach them in this. Parentshop’s training courses teach you:

  • How to manage behavioural issues
  • How to reduce the stress of disruptions
  • What happens when children get upset
  • What adults can do to help with this emotion
  • How to help students engage their ‘mental brakes’ and develop self-control

The training courses are quick and affordable. The method-based learning is simple, effective and easy to apply in the school environment.

Our training creates positive outcomes in school communities

Parentshop’s training for primary schools assists teachers to reduce many common behavioural difficulties. The benefits include:

  • A safe and consistent learning environment: Students experience a predictable and effective response to behavioural issues by all adults across the school community.
  • Less crowd control, more learning: Teachers can focus on teaching, students on learning, school leaders on developing a quality learning environment and parents can enjoy family time again.
  • Less stress, more confidence: A common understanding reduces conflict between school leaders, parents and staff, supporting better relationships and mental health for all.
