The School of Education at The University of Northampton has a long standing history of work in the field of pupil behaviour and violence reduction. NCfLB continues this activity, drawing in the experience of our associates; inparticular our strength is in the area of qualitative enquiry.
Particular areas of interest are:
- identifying leadership skills and research into factors influencing the setting of a school climate of harmony for violence reduction and the promotion of positive behaviour
- exploring links between home & school in the context of pupil behaviour and the effectiveness of parent education programmes
- exploring links between behaviour and learning in schools and settings
