Behaviour and Vulnerability Profile Tool

 

The Behaviour and Vulnerability Profile Tool is a simple to use means of identifying, prioritising and tracking vulnerable pupils.  It can be used to inform priorities and provision planning to support individuals and groups.

 

The BVPT is a valuable contribution to pupil progress tracking systems and safeguarding.  In addition, it provides essential documentary evidence for Ofsted by informing school self-evaluation.
