|Erin Barton||Emotional Regulation Support Lead
The behavior support team at Dysart school is led by Erin Barton. Erin works closely with staff to ensure an ongoing, holistic approach to supporting Dysart pupils. She supports staff to work together more effectively through what they say and do. Erin also works with pupils across the school to provide positive behaviour support and behaviour support plans if needed. At Dysart we recognise that all behaviour is a form of communication and it is Erin’s role to put her detective hat on and discover what is behind the behaviours of an individual pupil. She can then figure out what strategies to put in place in support to enable Dysart pupils to thrive.
Erin, also supports families of our pupils. This can be in the form of a phone call, home visit or making a resource that can be used by families to mirror best practice and bridge the gap between home and school.
