Statements given when ending support:
'The support provided for our Year 1 class has been exceptional. When the Waterside team initially came the class were very dysregulated and found it hard to even settle to learn. One might even use the words ‘out of control’. However, with intense support and continual advice the teacher has been able to manage the dynamics, behaviours and encourage good attention and listening. We now have a class ready to progress. I am so grateful for this support for our school and cannot praise the staff enough.'
