After being excluded from mainstream school, Peter* had been out of education for a year. Not only did Tram House School give him a fresh start, we gave him the support he really needed. Now he’s becoming more independent and learning to communicate effectively.
In his previous school, Peter would run away from support staff. He would bite and pull others, grab food, headbutt and scratch.
Because Peter has no form of functional communication, he struggled to express his feelings. This meant staff found it difficult to meet his needs effectively.
Ultimately, his behaviour limited his learning and led to his exclusion.
