Working with schools to deliver better outcomes
Our rationale for offering the service
- Many of the behavioural issues that children exhibit can be a direct result of early life trauma and so managing this must involve a trauma-based approach, not just behaviour management.
- Our offer focuses on the provision of support for pastoral care, behavioural issues, attendance concerns and challenges within pupils’ homes.
- Our services reduce the potentially damaging impact of early life toxic stress. Reducing the impact of toxic stress caused by early life trauma, often called Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s), is key to maximizing the chances of good physical, mental and emotional health.
We will provide a bespoke service and audit of a school, as well as consultation, guidance and recommendations on implementing a trauma informed approach to help address attendance and behavioural issues within your student body. This will include a programme of support for children requiring extra support
▪ We will base an experienced practitioner in your school to identify and address the potential impact of early life trauma.

▪ We will work as part of the school team and support the whole school population, including pupils that live out of the borough.
▪ Our practitioner will work flexibility to the needs of the school.

▪ Our practitioners have strong links to social work teams who can expertly navigate and access these services; including access to the local authority case management system to provide more timely and improved information sharing.
