Sarah is eight years old and attends a year 4 class. She has recently joined the school after moving house from a different area. Sarah’s teachers say that her behaviour is challenging and unacceptable (swearing, shouting, attempting to provoke other pupils and temper tantrums) and she has few friends. She also displays academic weaknesses and is one year behind her Year group in reading and spelling. Sarah’s teachers are concerned about the impact her behaviour is having on other pupils.
