How Time Flies ... In Solihull

A year ago Park Hall Academy in Solihull introduced the behaviour tracking system Sleuth.  Within a term they reported a "massive improvement" in their ability to manage behaviour.  (Read the original case study here)

This term we were invited back to the school to review their progress.  It would be easy to focus on the huge (over 80%) drop in fixed period exclusions but equally noteworthy is the reduction in day-to-day low-level behaviour.  Both achievements are the product of good policy and good practice.  Through effective behaviour tracking, staff at all levels know what behaviour is happening in school and are proactive and consistent in managing it.

The improvement at Park Hall Academy is not unique, any school with the right tools and approach can improve behaviour.  In fact, most schools already do the hard part, they record behaviour, whether on paper or electronically. However, very few schools use the right tools to make really effective use of this recorded data.  This is where Sleuth makes such a difference, schools that use Sleuth are able to develop a policy that works in practice and improves behaviour.  Park Hall Academy is just one example of this.
