Positive Behaviour Support


At Bradstow School the ethos and philosophy reflect the principles of Positive Behaviour Support.  This enables the school to be person centred whilst at the same time teaching young people alternative behaviours to take the place of those behaviours that may limit their opportunities.

To do this effectively requires a sound understanding of the behaviour; this is provided by accurate functional analysis based on systematic data collection and evaluation.  Once the analysis is complete, intervention strategies are incorporated within the Individuals Positive Behaviour Support Plan.

The behaviours and responses within this plan are extensively risk assessed and where necessary Restrictive Practice Reduction Plans are in place to ensure that the school is always using the least amount of restriction necessary to ensure everyone’s safety.

This whole process is underpinned by BILD accredited training which focuses on Positive Behaviour support and restraint reduction.
