Introducing our 'Green Room'
3rd September 2017
The Green Room is a place where pupils spend time away from other pupils supervised by a member of staff and either allowed time to talk or given time to de-escalate their behaviours/anxieties, using de-escalation techniques, time for reflection, relaxing techniques, sensory regulation and the five-point scale. Generally, this is used as a positive strategy to help more vulnerable pupils identify their own systems for calming themselves and managing their emotions effectively through encouraging use of the facility as and when necessary. The Green Room should be used as a place to help pupils manage their behaviour and anxieties at times when pupils show high levels of arousal, with support and direction from staff.
