How one school in a very challenging environment were judged outstanding for behaviour, in consecutive inspections. It features an in-depth interview with the Deputy Headteacher describing their approach to behaviour management and how, despite high fixed-period exclusions, when it came to completing the SEF they could provide clear evidence that behaviour was improving.

Examples of using data from Sleuth as evidence in your SEF includes:
Sleuth is used in all aspects of behaviour management, for example, schools also use Sleuth to:
