Download Publication PDF file - 1.4 MB
This publication is for professionals working to support pupils who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD). It is a course made up of a series of short case studies and four modules:
- Module 1: How do BESD develop?
- Module 2: How can I improve provision in the classroom for pupils with BESD?
- Module 3: How can I support individual pupils with BESD more effectively?
- Module 4: What are the other sources of support?
The course can be may be used in a variety of ways, but ideally, the modules could be introduced in sequence because later modules build on the activities in earlier ones and assume an understanding of language and information.
The aims of this programme are to:
- improve outcomes for pupils with BESD
- increase knowledge and understanding among professionals about the complex nature of BESD
- share good practice so that professionals in mainstream schools can make adjustments to their policies, practices, procedures and curriculum that will enable more young people with BESD to benefit from a mainstream education.
The Inclusion Development Programme (IDP) is part of a strategy to improve outcomes for children with special educational needs. The IDP should not replace specialist knowledge; rather it is intended to support specialist advice and guidance.

School leaders, parents and carers, Department for Education staff, governors, inclusion staff, initial teacher training mentors, tutors and student, local authority staff, newly qualified teachers, special educational needs staff, school improvement staff and manager, subject leaders, teachers, teaching assistants.
