Bracknell Forest Behaviour Support Service

Covid-19 Support for Schools 

We recognise that children and young people with Social Emotional Mental Health needs and their families will be facing numerous challenges as a result of Covid-19.  A small number of links and resources that you may find useful at this time are included in the downloads section at the right hand side of this page. 

Due to the current climate we have adapted our working style so that we can continue to support schools remotely. As we return to a” new normal” our priority will be to ensure a smooth transition back into school for pupils with SEMH needs by supporting schools to adapt their Behaviour Support Plans alongside their Risk Assessments.

If you cannot find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs and access more of our resources. You can find our contact details at the bottom of the page.
