HOW DO WE WORK WITH STUDENTS?

We provide appropriate support to students, co-ordinating outside agencies where necessary and personalising specific intervention, enabling them to manage day-to-day life in school. We support students, either in small groups or on a 1:1 basis, by delivering specific intervention packages. Students are highlighted by parents, tutors, progress leaders ‘Every Child Matters’ meetings, or other outside agencies. We also support the school’s ‘Discipline for Learning’ system and withdraw students (at teachers request) who can no longer stay in the classroom. Appropriate work is provided by teachers and students are given the time and opportunity to talk through and reflect on their behaviour. Past evidence suggests that this type of support helps those students who are:

  • Low / non-attendance students
  • Lacking in social skills
  • Experiencing behavioural difficulties
  • Experiencing anxiety
  • Recently bereaved or from a split family
  • Identified as having specific needs

Supporting students in a triage approach (student-family-school) allows for the personalised provision to be implemented effectively so the overall emotional and social wellbeing of students‟ needs are met.

INTERVENTION

  • Raising aspirations
  • Managing difficult situations
  • Transition (Year 6)
  • Mentoring
  • Behaviour
  • Organisation
  • Coping under pressure
  • Avoiding conflict with others / friendships
  • Specific subjects or other relevant material
  • Developing self-esteem and confidence

Working alongside families is also an important aspect of student support and we try to support and signpost any family which may be going through any difficulty. Being a parent is a challenging role and, at times, it helps to know you have someone to trust and work with to ensure your child/ren have the very best experience in school and at home.
