In this comprehensive course, educators and school staff will delve into the intricacies of effectively managing the SEND behaviour in the classroom and around the school. Through a combination of theoretical frameworks and practical strategies, participants will gain valuable insights into building positive relationships that nurture a supportive and inclusive learning environment for all students.

SEND Behaviour is not always a choice 

Education settings should not assume that all behaviour is deliberate and within a child or young person’s control. Children with SEND do not always make “poor choices”, particularly if they are struggling at school without the support they need. This was spelled out clearly in a landmark ruling in 2018 by the Upper Tribunal.

SEND Behaviour INSET outline:

SEND Behaviour Management in schools

Strategies for promoting positive behaviour and minimising disruptions will be discussed, emphasizing the importance of consistency and clear communication.

Positive rewards culture

The course will highlight the significance of implementing a positive rewards system to reinforce desired behaviours and motivate pupils with SEND. By creating a culture of recognition and celebration, educators can effectively promote a conducive learning environment that encourages active engagement and participation.

The needs of SEND children

Understanding the unique needs and challenges faced by children with SEND is crucial for providing appropriate support and interventions. Participants will learn about different types of SEND, as well as effective ways to cater to individual learning requirements within a classroom setting.

SEND Green Paper

The course will critically examine the key principles and recommendations outlined in the SEND Green Paper, which seeks to improve the educational outcomes and experiences of children with SEND. Participants will reflect on the implications of the Green Paper for their practice and explore strategies for implementation.

The neurodivergent child including Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)

Participants will gain insights into the complexities of supporting neurodivergent children, including those with conditions such as Pathological Demand Avoidance. Strategies for recognising triggers, managing challenges, and fostering positive relationships will be explored.

How to help children regulate their behaviour

Educators will learn practical techniques for supporting children with SEND in regulating their emotions and behaviour. By promoting self-regulation skills and providing appropriate coping mechanisms, participants can empower pupils to navigate social and emotional challenges more effectively.

SEND Behaviour: The role of the staff

The course will highlight the pivotal role of school staff in creating a nurturing and inclusive environment for pupils with SEND. Participants will explore strategies for collaboration, communication, and proactive support to meet the diverse needs of all learners.

Reasonable adjustments

Understanding the legal requirements and ethical considerations surrounding reasonable adjustments is essential for promoting equal opportunities and accessibility for pupils with SEND. Participants will learn how to identify and implement appropriate adjustments in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

All course content is designed to be adaptable to suit the specific contextual needs of individual school settings. By cultivating a deeper understanding of effective behaviour management strategies and building positive relationships with pupils with SEND, educators can create an inclusive and empowering learning environment where every child can thrive.
