Empowering Pupils to Improve
News Image

Clarendon School in Richmond is a community special school for pupils aged 7-16 with moderate learning difficulties and additional complex needs, including autism. They introduced Sleuth to bring together a number of different recording systems into a one centralised place so that it could be analysed more efficiently to measure progress.

Deputy head Paul Jensen explains why Clarendon introduced Sleuth and how it contributes to their approach to behaviour management:  

"We introduced Sleuth to enable us to identify the behaviours that we needed to target for modification and to measure progress once we had put in place appropriate interventions. Previously we had multiple books for recording different types of behaviours and it was impossible to interrogate the information efficiently. "

"The beauty of Sleuth is that it’s so dynamic. You can analyse by date, behaviour, student, intervention, and really hone in on the needs of the kids. You can look at a specific behaviour and set a target for an individual to modify that behaviour."

"It gives a real focus for improvement. The kids are really interested in their progress, they get their targets for the week and feel empowered."
