BTLS have produced a report that can produce a list of students with  a Y code. This is imported into SIMS and accessed in the same way  as the existing BTLS suite of reports.

You  may recall seeing an opportunity on the portal to  sign up for a free Behaviour Mentor training programme.

We have now completed this process in all districts and have our team of behaviour mentors up and running,. We know that they are busy  developing some of the strategies which they  picked up on the training in their own schools but they  have also  identified areas they a re now able to  support other schools with. This might be a visit from the Behaviour mentor to  your school or for your staff to  visit the behaviour |mentor and see them in operation.

The main focus is peer to  peer support. It may  be that  you  are planning on the developing the role of one of your school TA’s to  have more expertise in behaviour. A visit to  one of our mentors would  enable them to get a clear overview of the possible activities making up such a role and to  look at practical resources, assessments, action planning etc which they  could  use in their own school.

Examples of the types of support that can be offered are:

A visit to the behaviour mentors school to share ideas around:

· Resourcing, accommodation (e.g. nurture provision), time management

· The use of assessment tools such as Boxall

· The production of behaviour support plans

· Planning and delivering a support session for a small group or individual. 

· The use of support staff at lunchtime to arrange play or support vulnerable students

 Outreach visit to a local school by the behaviour mentor to:

· Collaborate on the development of a nurture space.

· Share expertise on the delivery of small group intervention sessions

· Support the TA’s working at lunchtime with strategies to improve behaviour

· Support TA’s with ideas for supporting children with behaviour issues in the classroom
