We know that improving behaviour in schools increases pupil achievement and that by reducing exclusions it saves schools tens of thousands of pounds. When looking at returning children following an exclusion and/or period of respite, we need to ensure a child is reintegrated effectively. This is the key to success and yes, we need to repsond to each individual child's needs carefully and personalise our approach appropriately to maximise the learner's outcomes.
We know that through working with both the home and the school that we can effectively restore relationships by using restorative approcahes, mentoring the child and advocating where needed on behalf of the parent. Knowledge is wisdom in these situations and we have years of experience in this with a near 100% reintegration rate.
Moreover, the social impact of reducing exclusions, improving attendance and reducing incidents of inappropriate behaviour is long-lasting and reduces pressure on down-stream services that local authorities find difficult to sustain. As a result, our approach has proven to reduce permanent exclusions in Inner London boroughs by one hundred percent in primary schools and by fifty-three percent in secondary maintained schools. Within schools we have reduced the number of behaviour referrals by over sixty percent and made isolation rooms redundant due to improved behaviour and alternatives to exclusions.
We are able to provide your school with mentors for children, home school liaison workers, advocacy workers, restorative justice facilitators, volunteers, parent forum facilitators, trainers, consultants and acess to seminars, events and conferences.
