According to Wayt (2008) The main role of a teacher is to have a good way of communication level with its students which will encourage them to speak up in lessons and voice opinion. I agree with this as if a student feels comfortable in a classroom then he is more likely to voice an opinion during a lesson.

I agree with Guild (2001) that “The need to address the balance between uniformity and diversity is urgent”(2001) this is because there is an imbalance which is damaging teachers and learners. Addressing this could cut out problems within the classroom and make teachers more aware of what they should and shouldn’t say.

Each teacher has to follow the health and safety at work act (1974). This is to ensure that there is a safe environment in the work place where each student feels safe working. Failing to do this as a teacher, would result in a teacher losing their job.

According to Martin (2010) that to create a safe teaching environment that a teacher would need to “apply behaviour management strategies” (2010) in such a way that it was consistent and fair, and if a student was to break these rules seek advice from other authorities. I agree with this as I feel to maintain a safe environment within a classroom there needs to be behaviour rules in place so that all students know what is expected off them.
