The North Lincolnshire Behaviour Support Team provides support to children who have, or are likely to have, significant social emotional and mental health difficulties in settings.
Support and guidance is provided through outreach visits to individual pupils in:
- Early Years Providers settings
- Primary schools
- Through training to Secondary schools
Transition support to nursery settings and to secondary schools may be provided when required.
We work with school staff to advise, train and equip them to better understand and deal with challenging behaviour.
In-Reach support may be offered at specialist teaching bases. Children aged 3-5 years may be offered a place in the Rainbow Room at the Early Learning Development Centre for more intensive support whilst children aged 7-11 may attend the Wyredale Road Centre (WRC). Placement is discussed and agreed through a Panel process which also serves to refer to our two specialist locality provisions attached to primary schools.
Parent Pitstop is a 10 week course run by the team for parents of children up to the age of 5 years who are experiencing behavioural or emotional difficulties at home.
Building positive relationships through play sessions may be offered to targeted families known to the team. These run in the school holidays.
The team provides bespoke training to schools and settings on behaviour management with an emphasis on de-escalation and targeting the specific social, emotional and mental health needs of the children referred.
The importance of consistency and team work in the setting is recognised and promoted.
Team Teach training is offered to all our primary and secondary schools and to our colleges within North Lincolnshire.
We can support schools and academies where pupils are at risk of exclusion or are disengaging from learning.
