I worked with staff to identify the barriers children within the school face to learning and what is preventing them from engaging.
With a certain group of students, common problems were identified with behaviour, regulation, friendship groups, communication. This was identified through observations, feedback from teachers and from SLT.
After drafting a rough plan, we finalised the interventions through an action plan to identify all students, the area of need, how their needs will be met and which actions would require funding. This included “Circle of Friends” training, linking with an outside agency and liaising with a family psychotherapist. Baseline assessments were taken before and after the project.
