Wolverhampton Emotional Wellbeing and Behaviour Pathway

The Pathway provides good practice guidance for promoting wellbeing and positive behaviour in school. It outlines steps that school staff can take to identify the right strategies, understand children’s needs and difficulties better, and plan and review support. The guidance aligns with the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). It provides a framework for a graduated response to identifying needs and implementing support.

The Educational Psychology Service offers free training to support this guidance. Please visit our Training and Events page and look for “Getting it Right: Positive Steps to Support Behaviour and Emotional Wellbeing in Schools.” The guidance booklet, word versions of planning documents and an ABC chart can be found below.

Supporting children and young people using the PACE model during the return from the partial closure of schools

The PACE model is grounded in trauma-informed practice and is a method that guides adults in how to help children feel safe, secure and trust in them. It focuses on the strengths and positive attributes of the child. PACE stands for playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy. This is a free introductory training video developed by the Educational Psychology Service. If you would like this session to be delivered live to your staff or would like a follow-up Q&A session once this has been watched, please contact your link Educational Psychologist.
