About Our Service

Welcome to the Oakgrove BSS and Primary Jigsaw Website

The Behaviour Support Service is part of Stockport’s

outreach provision for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.


The Behaviour Support Service works with Stockport’s mainstream schools to:


• Support schools in identifying the specific needs of pupils who present with emotional and behavioural difficulties
• Assist schools in managing children who present a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.
• Support Headteachers and senior managers in the development of effective whole school policy and practice in relation to behaviour.
• Provide high quality training to school staff and parents in areas that will support children with SEBD achieve both academically and socially.
• Through good working practice, increase the range of strategies and interventions used by mainstream teachers.
 Support parents and carers in working with their children and their schools.

about bss

With the aims above in mind we work with children at all stages of the special needs code of practice, a great deal of our work focusing on early prevention and intervention.

At the Primary level, the school and service work together as one provision to ensure support for pupils in mainstream schools and within Oakgrove school. At a secondary level we have strong links with all other SEBD and alternative providers with whom we liaise as well as mainstream schools to meet the needs of pupils. We continually monitor overall and individual needs to ensure pupils are appropriately included in a placement that best fits their requirements, whether that be in mainstream or a more specialist setting.
BSS has been instrumental in the development of Restorative Approaches and Forest Schools in Stockport.
