Session E: Sleuth Good Practice Review & Report

There are many outcomes to using Sleuth, from reducing referrals and improving communication to targeted CPD and early intervention. Through our Sleuth Training Programmes we have worked with a huge number of schools, each with their own policy and outcomes for behaviour tracking. From these experiences have come hundreds of examples of good practice in using Sleuth to achieve the desired outcomes and improve behaviour management.

To complement our on-site training programmes we also offer a Sleuth Good Practice Review. The review is specific to your school, your policy and your planned outcomes. It looks in detail at how Sleuth is set-up and how your staff are using it to record and report on behaviour. The result of the review is a detailed report describing all of our findings with recommendations for optimising your use of Sleuth to save time, increase efficiency and improve behaviour management. We will email you the report and can then arrange to talk through our findings with you over the phone.
