There are 35 schools in the Norwich Opportunity Area. Norfolk County Council wish to establish an approved list of 5 Providers to support schools in managing challenging behaviour. Rates of exclusion are high in Norwich, leading to high numbers of pupils either being educated in alternative provision, or not attending school at all. There is limited understanding of precisely why exclusions are so high relative to the rest of England, however we know that most exclusions are for persistent disruptive behaviour.
A “Norwich Inclusion Charter” has been developed in consultation with schools, local partners and the local authority. The Charter represents a shared commitment to collaborate to reduce exclusion in the city and will be supported by a range of interventions funded by the Opportunity Area. Developing an Inclusive School Culture is one of the areas. The NOA includes 35 primary/infant/junior schools, 8 secondary schools and 6 special schools.
We wish to have a maximum of 5 Providers on this approved list to:
• Support the school leadership in developing existing behaviour policy and practice
• Offer a distinct whole-school approach to behaviour management
• Support development of a school inclusion action plan
• Training and coaching for leaders, governors, teachers and support staff
• A strategy for parental involvement in behaviour approach
• A mechanism for schools to monitor and evaluate the impact of the approach
Application documents are attached to this notice. Your response must be received no later than 2pm UK time Friday 7th December
