Renowned Teacher Guide Updated by Local School Improvement Adviser

New Look Boxall Profile for Young People Will Help Teachers Understand Children With Behavioural Problems More Effectively.

4 Manx Schools and a local school improvement adviser have been instrumental in updating a vital guide that helps teachers understand pupils with behavioural problems.

The Boxall Profile for Young People will endeavour to help the teachers develop new proactive strategies when it comes to dealing with pupils from 11-14 experiencing social and emotional problems aswell as just behavioural.

The original profile was published 12 years ago and targeted much younger children, the change came when School Improvement adviser on the Island, Dave Colley, decided it needed making applicable to older students.

The original guide has sold tens of thousands of copies to School's around the World since it's release, it's hoped the updated version will echo its success, with 10 schools across the Isle of Man and the UK adopting its practices.

Co-author Dave Colley told us that the Boxall Profile promotes the importance of establishing nurture groups that offer a slow moving, safe environment to help the children gain the skills needed to be successfully reintegrated back into the classroom.
