Policy and Guidance

Developing an Attachment Aware Behaviour Regulation Policy. 

Guidance for Brighton & Hove Schools
"The purpose of the guidance is to promote a move away from traditional behaviour management approaches which often place huge emphasis on rewards and punishments linked to behaviour towards a more humanist, relational and universal approach, which is inclusive for all and can benefit the whole school community.  It is intended to encourage schools to develop their behaviour policies in line with Attachment Aware principles... and to ensure that their Behaviour Regulation Policy translates into whole school practice."
