Our school provides a wraparound care system where all staff are skilled at providing the support that children with additional difficulties need.
At the Davenport School, we have a whole school approach to SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning). This means that we work hard to develop positive relationships with our children and the quality of these relationships are at the core of every child’s success. We want our students to feel listened to, so that we can understand and meet their needs.
The staff work in a calm, positive manner and role model the kind of behaviours they want to see in the students. Praise and reward is used to encourage a change from negative behaviour. The students are encouraged to recognise and talk about their feelings and staff help students to develop ways in which they can express themselves in a constructive and positive way.
Students are mentored by a key person who they have developed a positive relationship with. This means that the pupils are given individual support and time to express themselves and the adult is able to support the pupil with any problems or issues that arise during the school week.
