Behaviour Management at Newfield
Newfield School staff use psychological perspectives on behaviour: implications for supporting pupils
Above anything, as a school, we pride ourselves in the level of care and support we provide for our pupils and their emotional, social and behavioural well-being. The safeguarding and safety of ALL our pupils take priority over all we do.
Here we look at five perspectives and the associated actions that we use at Newfield recommended by Young Minds to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people :
Involve the pupil
Understand the needs of the pupil
5. Social learning
Model good skills
As a school, we are also trained in Team Teach. This is a strategy that focuses on de-escalation of a crisis or situation to support the pupil. The Team Teach philosophy incorporates the above methods.
If a child is at risk of injury to themselves or others, or to cause significant damage or disruption to learning, then positive handling strategies may be considered as a last resort. Pupils have an individual risk assessment at Newfield School, to identify triggers and reduce risk. A positive handling plan may be created if a child requires this intervention, that will consider their emotional, physical and behavioural needs
If you feel you need support with behaviour management strategies please speak to the class teacher. They will gladly meet with you to discuss strategies, that we use in school, that may be useful at home.
