Behaviour Partnership

Welcome to The Acorn Centre and DSPL9 Behaviour Partnership Page

The DSPL9 Behaviour Partnership, Tiered Model for Primary Schools

Tier 1:

Each school to ensure clear, consistent behaviour policy, induction for new staff, identification of training needs etc.

Tier 2:

Each area: Watford, Bushey and Radlett, Croxley Green & Rickmansworth and South Oxhey has a ‘Hub’ school. This is a small team of teaching and support staff who have a range of resources to provide lower level generic behaviour support i.e. classroom environment, lunchtimes, positive language, peer to peer support, this will include a visit to hub school

Tier 4:

Children at risk of permanent exclusion

The Acorn Centre may offer an alternative environment for Primary aged children for up to 3 terms, Outreach Services may be offered in the school setting prior to this. Your Service Request will need to meet clear criteria; schools will share referral and evidence at an inclusion panel. This would be expected to include evidence of strategies used by school and impact, incidents, advice/support from other agencies – this may not always be Chessbrook – could be involvement by an EP, communication team, CAMHS or other appropriate service/agency

Tier 5:
