Behaviour Surgeries Virtual Surgeries
Behaviour Surgeries 2019-20
During last year surgeries were provided every half term, sometimes at Stepping Stones school and sometimes within Districts 2 and 4.
They are informal events open to any staff from our primary mainstream schools. From 4.15-5.15 colleagues were able to bring specific pupils’ challenges to discuss and were provided with support, advice and signposting. An opportunity to browse through and borrow from the Resource Library proved very valuable for those wanting to ‘try before they buy’ and for those without the budgets to buy.
Behaviour Surgeries 2020-21
Due to the restrictions to ensure safety post Covid-19 lockdown, we are still providing Behaviour Surgeries but in an alternative format.
To take place half termly where any school staff can bring issues to discuss within a Zoom meeting, relating to children’s emotional and mental health and behaviour issues. The issue will be discussed as a group, sharing skills and expertise. Staff should email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to book, stating the specific nature of the difficulty they wish to discuss. A Zoom invitation will be sent:
Tuesday 12 January 3.30-4.30
Tuesday 2 March 3.30-4.30
Tuesday 20 April 3.30-4.30
Tuesday 15 June 3.30-4.30
A new model where 4 trained Behaviour Mentors are appointed to represent and support the schools within district 4. They will be allocated 11 schools each, whom they will contact fortnightly to discuss and provide advice for pupils presenting with low level behaviours. These discussions will be monitored by specialist teachers from Stepping Stones and Pear Tree specialist School. Some of these pupils might be referred on for support packages from Stepping Stones or Pear Tree.
There are 4 post vacancies for these positions, applications to be made by 12.00 on 31/03/2021.
