Behaviour Support Service

 

The Behaviour support is an eclectic service that delivers bespoke packages in collaboration with class teams and therapy services as detailed in individual Behaviour Support and Risk Reduction Plans (BSPs) including:-

 

Team Teach

 

The whole school team are trained in Team Teach which emphasises CALM communication and employs de-escalation skills that work best for specific individuals concerned, acknowledged within their personalised Behaviour Support and Risk Reduction Plans (BSP).

 

Positive Physical Interventions are only used as a last resort and are underpinned by Addington’s values and principles of positive, educative care. There is an emphasis on individual human rights, responsibility, choices and consequences.

 

Team Teach strategies are flexible and yet robust enough to make us all feel free of fear and safe from harm.

 

Over 95% of all incidents are managed without recourse to Positive Physical Interventions.

Addington School has 1 Advanced Team Teach Trainer and 3 Intermediate Team Teach trainers, available for in-house training and training within the Wokingham Authority.

 

Nurture

 

Addington has three qualified Nurture Assistants delivering tailored Nurture Programmes to individuals and small groups based on additional individual needs. Nurture aims to improve the emotional wellbeing of young people.
