Simon Dean

Simon Dean has over 28 years experience as a teacher including more than 13 as an Assistant Head teacher and an Assistant Head of school in a large West London secondary. Whilst working at a large secondary school in West London, Simon realised that the whole school behaviour system needed changing urgently. This was the lightbulb moment that Simon needed and it was then that he discovered the huge benefits of Restorative Justice in schools. In redesigning his school’s behaviour system, he was crucial in the school’s rise to Outstanding and gained high praise from Ofsted inspectors for the work he did in training all the staff in the school, both teaching and non teaching. Simon delivers training to teachers, schools and other organisations on topics such as behaviour management, behaviour for learning, and Restorative Justice. The key to his success lies in his personable, enthusiastic and flexible approach and his total belief that the key to good behaviour management lies in building positive relationships.
