Child X was in Yr6 at the time and has since progressed in to Yr7.
Child X was referred to the programme due to concerning behaviour both in and out of school.
Child X was assessed academically at the start of the programme at 3c for Maths, 4c for Writing and 3B for Reading.
School staff reported that Child X severely bullied other children and had little regard for the consequences of their actions. The aggression and anger that child X displayed was of a serious concern which posed a significant risk of exclusion from school. Child X had a good attendance record and could produce some good work. Child X responded well to anger management sessions, this led to a CAMHS referral and on-going 1-1 input. Progress was made and behavior incidents reduced. Parents completed an assessment to monitor the situation and to support a smooth transition to Secondary School.
In September Child X made a successful transition to secondary school and was assessed at level 4 for English, level 3 for Math and level 4 for Science. Child X is now familiar with the school routine with regards to lesson changes, behaviour policy, and uniform expectations. On the whole Child X has coped very well; now a helpful caring young person who with continued support will academically achieve set goals.
When I first came to this school last year, child x was in my class and aspirations were really low. Child x told me that when he grew up he didn’t want a job and he was ‘thick’, so I was really pleased and surprised when I recently overheard the boys discussing career options and which college they would like to attend. It was a really involved conversation, in which they invited me to comment and pass opinion. Knowing child x as I do, I felt that you should know about this as I believe it is evidence of the real success of the programme holds for the children in raising aspirations.
