Diversity Day is a training event offered to all our local trainee teachers and NQTs. The day focuses on building awareness of diversity within schools and inspiring trainees and NQTs to adapt their teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of all students.
The next Diversity Day will be held in 2022.
SEBDOS is a traded service which provides schools with the support, advice and training to enable them to meet the needs of pupils with Social, Emotional and Behavioural difficulties.
The service aims to support schools to:
Maintain a low percentage of permanent and fixed term exclusions compared to the national average.
Maintain high levels of pupils with SEBD needs in mainstream schools and with attendance at the same level as their peers.
Ensure that all pupils referred are provided with support and/or placed in appropriate settings within a reasonable time frame.
The SEBD Outreach Service includes high quality and experienced practitioners from a range of professional backgrounds. Individual staff members have specific expertise relevant to work with early years, primary and secondary aged pupils with social, emotional and behaviour difficulties. They work with pupils in both mainstream schools and specialist provisions either individually or as part of a small group.
The team offers bespoke advice and consultation to school staff. It also offers support and training for teachers and teaching assistants around managing social, emotional and behaviour difficulties in the form of individual or group support. The work of the team is focused on early intervention and the prevention of crisis for children, their schools and families.
