Promoting emotional wellbeing and positive behaviour
Behaviour Support Service comprises of a team of specialist teachers with extensive skills and experience of working in Derbyshire schools and academies to promote positive behaviour and emotional wellbeing.
We work with schools to promote high standards of behaviour whilst focusing on the inclusion of children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs who may exhibit behaviour causing concern particularly if it is impacting upon the learning and achievement of an individual child or young person or that of others.
We are a referral based service offering consultation, advice and support to schools as part of the graduated response to identify, assess and meet the underlying SEMH and behavioural needs of children and young people. We deliver training to support the development of practice across staff and settings. Our aim is to improve outcomes for learning, social and emotional well-being and build the capacity within schools to promote positive behaviour and reduce exclusion.
Schools are increasingly drawing on Pupil Premium or GRIP funding to purchase services that close the gap in achievement and attainment for children displaying challenging behaviour as a result of SEND and SEMH difficulties.
