Turves Green Boys School in Birmingham highlights how it has met the needs of Aaron, a student with both ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder.
With 20 per cent of students on the SEN register, the school has a full team of learning mentors who counsel pupils and find outside support where necessary.
15-year-old Aaron, whose behaviour has been challenging since Year 7, has benefited from a range of schemes, including an intensive three week behaviour management programme called FLIP - Flexible Learning Individual Pathways.
Aaron has also gained significantly by taking part in Skill Force, a nationwide initiative that provides inspirational and motivational activities to around 8,000 14- to 16-year-olds a year.
His behaviour has improved significantly thanks to this support as well as the strong relationship that has evolved between Aaron's mother and the teaching staff.
