Since the project began in September
2003 a comprehensive training
programme has been developed to
provide staff,pupils and parents
with a range of positive strategies for
addressing issues of behaviour and attendance.
18 partner schools, from Primary,Secondary
and Special EBD schools make up the
Behaviour Improvement Project in Sefton.
All the schools appointed a Lead Behaviour
Professional (LBP) who leads the training and
cascading of training to all staff.The LBP is a
senior member of staff who models
appropriate positive interventions with all
members of the school community.
As the schools had adopted solution focussed
ways of working,a move towards formal
restorative practice seemed sensible.In May
2004 close links were developed with the
Sefton Centre for Restorative Practice which
has led the development of Restorative
Practice, and the centre’s staff provided Real
Justice Training for BIP schools. (excerpt)
