Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD) Network
Behaviour, emotional and social difficulties is a term for children who demonstrate withdrawn or isolated, nervous, anxious or depressed behaviour as well as those who act out their anger and frustration with very poor social conduct.
Provision for pupils who are referred by professionals for this support will remain on their own school roll and receive support from staff based in one of the eight Enhanced Mainstream Schools (EMS) for pupils with BESD. For a small number of pupils who need intensive specialist support, it may involve the pupil travelling to one of these schools.
