The Robson House Outreach Team supports children, from Nursery through to Year 6, whose behaviour puts them at high risk of permanent exclusion from a mainstream primary school. We aim, alongside school staff, to support the child’s family. We also help schools to develop skills and feel more confident in managing children’s challenging behaviour.
- We support children who are struggling to function successfully in mainstream schools as a result of social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.
- We aim to enhance children’s social interaction, emotional wellbeing, and behavioural self-regulation, so as to re-engage them with learning and thereby promote their academic attainment.
- We offer support for children, their families, and their school.
We work at different levels: with the whole school, with groups, and with individual children. We are available to talk over the phone about issues relating to individual pupils, groups, or whole-school needs. Discussions are confidential and anonymous. Concerns can therefore be discussed without involvement of parents / carers. Where direct work is agreed, referral is made with parental consent via eCAF.
We also offer a range of training to support school staff in managing challenging behaviour and promoting positive social interaction. (Click here for details.) Mainstream colleagues are also welcome to visit Robson House PPRU.
