PostHeaderIcon Challenging and disruptive behaviour in schools

Challenging and disruptive behaviour is on the rise in our schools.
It is a serious problem that contributes to a lowering of educational standards, but also causes long term problems as our pupils reach adulthood.

Challenging and disruptive behaviourThere are invariably underlying and serious causes that must be addressed before any improvement will be seen. 

These are the facts:

  • Nearly 16,000 children were admitted to hospital in 2009 for self-harming. 
  • One in three children aged 14 to 16 say that they feel depressed.
  • We have the highest rate of eating disorders in Europe - one in five teenagers admit to some type of eating problem and may be showing early signs of anorexia and bulimia.

Around half of children with emotional disorders fall significantly behind at school – and consequently we see a high rate of truancy and exclusions.


How can we identify the problem and address these issues in our young people?

Healthier children and young people do better in learning and in life! We have to address the issues facing them and help them make positive changes to their behaviour.

Our programmes are designed to encourage greater achievement in the classroom and to improve the health and wellbeing of our young people, teaching them good habits which will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

These workshops use creative arts to help young people communicate effectively with us and each other. We bring our specialist expertise - and a dynamic, fresh perspective to your school - helping you to broaden the range of services on offer to your pupils.
