At Billing Brook we believe that behaviour is a form of communication.
We understand that at times some pupils experience difficulties with their behaviour and social situations. To help us understand these difficulties better we carry out assessments using the ‘Boxall Profile and for pupils with autism SCERT's.
Following an assessment we implement suitable intervention programmes to help the pupil develop their skills, understanding and ability to manage situations .
All behaviour is recorded electronically and regularly analysed and appropriate strategies/programmes put in place.
All pupils have an Individual behaviour Management Plan (IBMP) which is shared with Parents/Carers.
Pupils are seen in 1 to 1 sessions for Protective Behaviour work. These sessions teach strategies to enable the child to build self-confidence, self-worth and life skills to help them deal with worries, anxieties and express when they need to talk to an adult for help or reassurance.
We encourage an ethos that ‘no worry is too small to share’.
Before work commences , Parents and Carers are informed of our intentions and all work is done in full consultation with the overview of the content of the sessions is shared in advance.
There maybe occasions that the academy seeks advice from our allocated EP. Should we need to do this, your permission is sought in advance and all reports shared.
