Learning Behaviour Principles and Practice: What works in schools (Added: 24 April 2006) Please find below a copy of a report from the DCSF. The practitioners' group on school behaviour and discipline was established by Ministers in May 2005 to give independent advice to the Government as to how behaviour in schools could be improved. The group was asked to identify practical examples of good practice that promote good behaviour and that can be adopted by all schools. This report identifies aspects of practice that create the right conditions for good behaviour to be learnt.
Children out of School: Proposals for Devolving Funding (Added: 02 January 2006) Please find below a copy of a report that provides an analysis of current funding and resources for Children out of School and suggestions for ways in which they could be devolved to groups of schools to support the implementation of hard-to-place protocols. The paper recommends that a series of headteacher workshops be held in terms 3 and 4 to support this process.

The LEA is responsible for a range of statutory duties. These include a duty to ensure that all registered pupils of compulsory school age attend school regularly. This responsibility is exercised through the Kent Attendance and Behaviour Service. The role of an Educational Welfare Officer is to work closely with schools and families to resolve attendance issues. An effective working relationship between schools and the ABS includes: shared policies and operational practices; clearly defined roles of school staff and EWO; agreed arrangements for consultation, referral, review, monitoring and evaluation, as well as quality control. If you have any enquiries or feedback , please contact Sally Williamson, Head of Attendance & Behaviour Service, on 01622 696646, or e-mail email@example.com.
