There are many young people who find that mainstream education doesn’t meet their needs.
They require a different setting and another way of learning to achieve, restore and build confidence, and be equipped with the skills, qualifications and self-esteem to succeed in college, work or an apprenticeship.
We have developed our curriculum and programmes with these different demands in mind, for young people to gain the most from their experience with us.
Through excellent partnership working there is comprehensive access to external agencies.
- All young people have a guidance adviser, who is available for face to face support in securing their post 16 route
- School Nurse for advice on any medical concerns
- Matthew Project for advice on lifestyle choices
- MAP (Mancroft Advice Project) who facilitate a youth action group
- Youth Advisory Board ( one of its four youth action groups is based in Horatio House)
- Police SNT (Safer Neighbourhood Team) who deliver a range of talks and discussions on all aspects of the law and build positive relations with young people
- GFS Platform delivering workshops on issues that particularly support young women
- We work as part of the team around the family for all pupils supported by a Family Support Plan
- We are fully involved for all pupils supported by Early Help, Common Assessment Framework (CAF) or Family Support Plan (FSP), YOT, Children in Need or Safeguarding teams
