Within SEN Code of Practice Behaviour Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD) has been replaced by a new term Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH). This is with a view of considering the behaviour “message” of underlying and unmet issues.

Also the new Ofsted framework requires schools to provide evidence to demonstrate effective practice and the impact of improvement strategies with regards to behaviour issues.  The content of the course will include:

  • Building rapport and relationships and developing role models

  • Working with other agencies
