Behaviour Support Team

Our Service

The Behaviour Support Team, at The Skills Hub, offers support and guidance on behaviour management to mainstream schools and academies. The team of experienced teachers provide a holistic approach to responding to challenging behaviour. We aim to help and support those working with young people to understand the presenting difficulties by planning and responding appropriately.

By providing early and targeted support through a child-centred approach, the Behaviour Support Team aims to: remove barriers to learning; help children achieve the most from their education and reduce exclusions and support inclusion.

The Behaviour Support Team offers: experienced teachers who have taught in a range of settings; a range of intervention programmes to support pupils; bespoke training for staff; strong collaborative links with a range of services and a helpline for advice and guidance.

Benefits of the Service – benefits of the service to students, schools, parents and families is as follows:

  • students learn strategies that work for them, so that they can learn to self-regulate
  • students have their individual needs met, helping them to develop their strengths, emotional resilience and independence
  • students become better engaged with their learning and can access more of the curriculum
  • students in mainstream schools have increased understanding, confidence and knowledge, and are better equipped to work with challenging behaviour
