Take 5 Reflection
Take 5 is an inclusion resource which offers an alternative to exclusion a preventative therapy and monitors reinclusion when a pupil returns from a period of exclusion.
Pupils may find themselves in Take 5 the day after a serious incident which without the Take 5 inclusion resource would warrant a one or possibly two day exclusion.
Take 5 operates during the morning and lunchtime and then pupils return to school and continue normal lessons with their class.
During their stay in Take 5 pupils benefit from being away from the day to day distractions of the main school and are able to focus on their work in a calm environment.
Time is spent on teaching social and life skills and
developing personal strategies to deal with their emotions.
Staff will encourage pupils to reflect on behaviour and
discuss alternative ways to have dealt with the incident which had resulted in their visit to Take 5
