At Seashell, we focus on delivering the best life outcomes for our students, their families and their communities. We reach this objective by providing high quality, coordinated and seamless specialist education, supported living services, therapy and care with a fully embedded positive behaviour support plan. 


The key principles of our positive behaviour support plan


A positive behaviour support approach is embedded across Seashell, and the key principles of our positive behaviour support are: 

A positive behaviour support approach is embedded across Seashell:

  • Working as a multidisciplinary team, we put strategies in place to develop the skills of the students, supporting young people with complex learning difficulties. This principle of positive behaviour support aims to improve our students’ communication and sensory issues and ensure their future impact is positive. 
  • We adopt the PROACT-SCIPr-UK programme, a nationally recognised programme designed to enable our people working with individuals with complex disabilities to engage in proactive methods of positive behaviour support. 
  • Our approach analyses practice, identifies patterns of behaviour, and enables staff at Seashell to support students with SEND with more efficient, proactive and active strategies. This allows our team to create bespoke positive behaviour support plans for our students to help them develop each and every day.


Active Support


Active Support, which originates from a care and group home approach, supports individuals to participate in meaningful activities. As a result, they can improve their independence, learn new skills and fully embrace opportunities in their life.

Implementing Active Support has enabled a whole team approach that allows all of our staff to operate in the same way across education and care. This approach to positive behaviour support has led to a clear improvement in the participation and independence of the young people at Seashell.

Our students benefit from some of the country’s best facilities for special needs students and equipment to improve their learning outcomes and quality of life. This also includes industry-leading strategy implementation, like our positive behaviour support plans.
