How one school is transforming the lives of its EBD pupils Visit Cuckmere House, an EBD Special School, and discover their strategies for dealing with severe emotional and behavioural difficulties.
The school has a consistent behaviour management policy. All pupils have behaviour targets and at the end of every lesson their behaviour is graded on a scale of A to F with clear consequences for good and bad behaviour. Whatever their previous behaviour, pupils are always given a new start. The school develops pupils’ social skills with a programme of outdoor pursuits and other activities. Communication within the school and with parents is seen as critical, with parents and carers receiving a copy of their child’s behaviour sheet every week.
