About Us

Supporting schools with challenging behaviour

Many children struggle in a busy classroom with their behaviour. Often this can be linked to an underlying social, emotional or mental health cause. We are here to help you identify the cause and support the child to make the changes they need in order to access learning. 

What do we offer?

We offer a wide range of training for  SENCOs, Teachers, Senior Leaders, Teaching Assistance and Lunchtime staff, whole school staff and Parent Support Advisors .

See In School training page for more detail.

Individual pupil consultation when a pupil is showing challenging behaviours, for more information regarding this level of support.
