Stockport Behaviour Support Service

About Our Service

BSS is based within Oakgrove Primary school. The service supports schools to include learners whose unmet needs present as behaviour that challenges.

 

Maintained Primary schools

In all maintained primary schools Behaviour Support Co-ordinators (BSC) are allocated a group of schools to visit either weekly or fortnightly.

The BSC plans priorities with the school and the intention is to work within these priorities for the next academic year.

 

We offer a combination of training, strategic support, support for individual or groups of staff or support for individual or groups of children.

 

When children are making little or no progress in terms of behaviour as a barrier to learning, they are likely to become Active to BSS after a period of supporting the school to input their own strategies. We will then work with the school to support them more intensively and we may then allocate some time from a Behaviour Mentor who will work alongside a member of school staff to support the child in order to first identify and then support unmet needs to remove barriers to learning. The Behaviour Support Coordinators are teachers who oversee and monitor impact of any work carried out by the rest of the staff from BSS in their schools.

 

Primary Academies

The above offer is available at a price per pupil based on numbers on roll. Alternatively, Primary Academies have the option to buy into our Silver or Bronze offer or indeed buy several options on an ad hoc basis (see separate paper).

 

Secondary Schools and Secondary Academies

Secondary schools can buy back the time of a Behaviour Support Coordinator calculated on a price for one day per week on an annual basis. The BSC plans priorities with the school and the intention is to work within these priorities for the next academic year. This work is a combination of training, strategic support, support for individual or groups of staff or support for individual or groups of children. 

 

When children are making little or no progress in terms of behaviour as a barrier to learning they are likely to become Active to BSS after a period of supporting the school to implement their own strategies.

 

Restorative Approaches

BSS has an LA Restorative Approaches Lead who delivers training throughout the LA to Stockport schools. She is accredited by the RJC and works from our firm belief that relationships are at the heart of a good education.

 

Forest Schools

BSS has a traded Forest Schools team of 6 practitioners who offer training, INSET, CPD and sessions for children. The Forest Schools Coordinator supports schools to deliver sessions where children develop an inner locus of control and a sense of self awareness that is sometimes missing in today’s busy environment.
