Stevenage DSPL

Welcome to DSPL 2

DSPL is a Hertfordshire-wide partnership approach where parents, carers, staff in early years settings and schools, further education colleges, local authority officers and representatives from other agencies, work together as part of an Area Group, to ensure that there is a range of provision and support services available in their local community.

This website provides information published by Stevenage DSPL Area Group 2.

The Stevenage DSPL 2 website is frequently updated so come back often to keep yourself up to date with what’s on offer.

Behaviour partnership – A robust and succinct service for our primary schools

* A triage panel in place to decide whether Tier 2 or 3 is appropriate.

* Build capacity in schools and offer strategies.

* Support tailored to the requirements of each receiving school. Click here to read more & to download referral form

The service will support children with significant needs who even after the implementation of strategies from Tier 1 and 2 support are still causing concern and whose behaviour is impacting on themselves and others. These pupils may have had or be at risk of fixed term exclusion.
