Behaviour Support

The North Lincolnshire Behaviour Support provides support to children who have, or are likely to have, significant social emotional and mental health difficulties in settings.

Support and guidance is provided through outreach visits to individual pupils in:

  • Early Years Providers settings
  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Through training and consultation
  • Through training to Secondary schools

Transition support to nursery settings and to secondary schools may be provided when required.

We work with school staff to advise, train and equip them to better understand and deal with challenging behaviour.

We offer training and consultation as well as direct work with pupils.


  • For all children to be able to attend their local schools.
  • Schools empowered to find solutions to challenging behaviours and emotional needs.
  • Children and young people are equipped to thrive in mainstream education.

I think my child may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism (ASD)

North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), North Lincolnshire Local Authority and HealthWatch have been working on a new multi-disciplinary Pathway for autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  From September 2019 there will be;

  • A single ‘Neurodiversity Team’, offering a single point of access for all referrals relating to ASD and ADHD and including CAMHS, Education Psychology, ASET team and Behavioural Support Services.
  • A ‘graduated approach’ to completing assessment paperwork which will avoid duplication of assessment
  • Greater awareness of the support given by services including the ASET team, Education Psychology and Behavioural Support and nurseries, schools, and colleges, at the earliest possible stage so that  ‘needs led’ interventions are put in place, based on presenting needs, regardless of diagnosis.

Support and training for parents, carers and families

Courses are available for parents and carer’s of children and young people with a diagnosis of ADHD.

Support and training for schools and settings

The service provides bespoke training to schools and settings on behaviour management with an emphasis on de-escalation and targeting the specific social, emotional and mental health needs of the children referred.

The importance of consistency and team work in the setting is recognised and promoted.

Team Teach training is offered to all our primary and secondary schools and to our colleges within North Lincolnshire.

We can support schools and academies where pupils are at risk of exclusion or are disengaging from learning.
