INSETS AND WORKSHOPS

Behaviour Level Descriptors (BLD) for Primary Schools

A bespoke INSET course offered to schools to help the progress of students’ behaviour. Ian Enwright (Head of all Surrey Primary PRUs) has worked alongside a trained lead Ofsted Inspector to develop a tracking and monitoring system using levels of age appropriate expected behaviours.

Staff can use targets to help students gain the next level of behaviour and Senior Leaders can easily track progress of student behaviours.

Feedback from schools who have adopted this system has been extremely positive and students like that they can assess their own behaviours and see how to improve.

This is a 90 minute INSET session delivered at your school, where Ian will present the theory and all the documentation and thenThanks leave all the resources at the school for you to implement. When booking this session you are agreeing to a follow up session around six months later to support implementation and check for any updates.

Positive Interventions

This is a bespoke INSET offer to Secondary and Primary Schools. Reigate Valley College (RVC) is a Teaching School Pupil Referral Unit. The Executive Headteacher is a National Leader of Education (NLE) and RVC is a National Support School. The school has many staff who are experts in Behaviour Management and we are delighted to offer schools advice on positive interventions.

If you have staff who are in need of Behaviour Management strategies either individually, or as a group, we are happy to come to your school and offer training. This will be bespoke to meet the needs of your students. This offer may be for supporting an individual student, groups of students or all students. We work with the staff and not the student, but often an observation of the student(s) is beneficial.

RVC can also include as part of this training advice on the EHCP process, when to start, what evidence to collect and how to show the impact of the support you have offered.

We can offer this support to all phases of education and welcome designing a package that will support your school with all its behaviour needs.

Understanding the vulnerable child 

This INSET session will reflect upon some of the things that can contribute to making a child vulnerable. Consideration will be given to areas such as Domestic Abuse, Trauma and Attachment issues as well as neglect and anxiety experienced by the vul-nerable child.

The session will consider the impact of this on the vulnerable child’s behaviour and ability to learn in the school environment and the effect this can have upon staff working around the child .

Strategies will then be discussed that may support the child, build their resilience and offer staff around them the feeling that they are succeeding (play – build relationships/build neural networks, trusted adult, sleep and food, safe place etc)

The session will conclude with the opportunity of case studies that are difficult to spot and possible strategies that can be used to assist the school and pupil
