Outreach Support

Stepping Stones supports mainstream primary schools within Districts 1, 2 and 4. This support can be commissioned to provide advice for individual pupils, whole classes, individual staff and whole staff CPD. See below for ‘Menu of Support’.

Each district has been allocated Local Authority funds to commission services to support the inclusion and prevent the exclusion of its pupils. Stepping Stones have worked with each district to ensure their requirements are met and bespoke support has been created.

All three districts have commissioned a Universal Offer of Support from Stepping Stones Outreach Team for every primary school within their district. This enables every school to have access to:

  • Telephone support as needed, with written feedback provided within 48 hours.
  • Half termly ‘Behaviour Surgeries’ where staff from the Outreach team  have 1:1 discussions with colleagues as needed, giving generic advice, guidance and support.
  • Access to loan resources from Stepping Stones’ catalogue of resources.

See below ‘Menu of Support’ for a full list of possible direct work options for mainstream schools to select from.
