To develop our offer around young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, we have established One City Schools, an Ofsted-registered school providing high-quality alternative provision for young people who are excluded, at risk of exclusion, who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or are unable to access mainstream schools.
In order to build capacity in a school, One Education worked with a group of teaching assistants, supporting them to deliver a loss and bereavement programme with small groups, written and developed by One Education. We modelled how to deliver the intervention over several weeks, then co-delivered with teaching assistants and ended by observing the teaching assistants delivering the programme. We then used a solution-focused approach to feed back on how to improve and develop the sessions. Sessions were evaluated as outstanding.
