Students are offered a variety of academic and SEMH (Social, Emotional & Mental Health) interventions based on their individual needs. Each intervention has a distinct purpose and works towards specific targets or outcomes. Interventions are provided on a weekly basis 1:1 with a member of staff. On occasion, small group interventions are provided if necessary.
Our academic interventions focus on English and Maths. However, if there is a particular area of difficulty we will support these needs accordingly. In addition, an intervention can be provided to challenge and stretch any pupils talented in a specific subject.
Music sessions are provided by the Schools' Music Service and students have the opportunity to learn a number of instruments and work towards graded certificates.
Not only do we care about the students academic progress, we also take great value in their mental health and wellbeing. As a result we hold weekly student coaching slots for every young person which aims to promote self-esteem, resilience and confidence. They also provide students with a safe place to talk. Progress is monitored using the Skills Identification Checklist annually.
