Support available to schools

Find out about the support available to educational settings. 

The Post Primary Behaviour Support & Provisions Service (PPBS&PS) supports children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) arising from difficulties in the following SEN Categories:   

  • Social, Behavioural, Emotional and Well-being (SBEW)  

The Service is a regional service made up of a team of professionals with knowledge, understanding and specific training in social, behavioural, emotional and well-being.  

We provide training, advice and support and work in partnership for the effective inclusion of children and young people with social, behavioural, emotional and wellbeing difficulties within post primary schools, learning support centres and special schools. 

Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) may also access resources via your local PPBS&P office and via whole-school training on a range of specific issues relating to supporting pupils with SBEW needs. 


One of our roles is to support a child or young person and their parents or carers while also building capacity within educational settings and schools.  

We offer a regional and school-based training programme, specifically designed for school staff. 

This includes an online training service that school staff may access via the Children and Young People’s Services Training Programme.   

Alternatively, schools can request face-to-face training by completing a School Behaviour Support BS1 Form.
