All staff are aware of the emotional and social difficulties that children may experience, and needs are addressed by the class teacher and supporting LSAs. Where the need may intensify, we have a small team of staff to work with children including a Learning Mentor and a pastoral LSA.
The staff use a range of programmes such as; Talking and Drawing, Social Use of Language Programme, Exploring Feelings, Go Girls, Why Try? to help children develop strategies for understanding and managing feelings and behaviour.
The school has a Behavioural Improvement Base (B.I.B) which is a secure space for children to reflect on their inappropriate behaviour should they need to be removed from the classroom. It is also used as a space for alternative provision where children have been unable to cope in the classroom during a specific lesson or as a consequence of more serious negative behaviour.
