A key part of effective classroom management is ensuring your students know what to expect in your classroom. Establishing clear classroom routines and procedures in the first weeks of school will avoid cognitive overload, help to avoid unnecessary disruptions and make sure the school day runs like a well-oiled machine.

This editable, printable checklist of classroom routines is a useful reminder of the classroom procedures to cover with your new learners, be they KS1 or KS4! It also includes space for your own additions. Start the new school year as you mean to go on.
