Cambridgeshire have developed a Steps behaviour policy guide. This can be used by all schools whether they have accessed Steps training or not. If you would like support using the guide, please contact your Link practitioner or the Cambridgeshire Steps and Trauma Informed Lead.

SEND Service 0-25 Exclusions Hotline is open daily 1400-1600 term time only. Outside the operational hours a message can be left on the voicemail system and the on-call practitioner will make contact at the earliest convenience.
The phone number for the hotline is 01353 612812.
The hotline is staffed by members of the SEND Services team who can offer advice and information around fixed term exclusion or permanent exclusion. If you would like clarification around aspects of exclusions or are unsure of exclusion procedures, then this can be discussed with a SEND link practitioner on the phone. The phone is not for reporting fixed term exclusions/expulsions – this information is collated separately from the hotline. If the practitioner is on an active call when you call in there is an opportunity to leave a voicemail for a call back.
Training for supporting children with SEND and SEMH needs can be found here.
