With over 15 years experience in providing Alternative Provision for schools, our service focusses on helping children and young people to thrive and flourish in education.
We provide skilled and experienced Outreach Practitioners, who offer a range of approaches depending on the need of the school and pupil, including behaviour management, mental health and wellbeing, nurture groups, restorative practice, trauma and autism informed, emotion coaching and play therapy amongst others.
We take a flexible, personalised approach to all of the services we provide in order to meet the needs of those we support. We are outcomes-driven, with the individual at the heart of any decision-making, accompanied by robust monitoring and reviewing procedures to ensure our services are appropriate and providing impact.
We do this through delivering either 1-to-1, or small group sessions, that focus on developing essential social emotional learning skills, these can include:
Our support celebrates the diverse make up of individual schools – driven by pupils’ likes and interests and school values. Therefore we plan our interventions around the children or young people’s needs, and always value the input from parents/carers and school staff.
Our support delivers a structured intervention that uses the Education Endowment Foundation’s recommended SAFE principles. This means our Outreach Practitioners provide pupils with a Sequenced set of activities that use Active forms of learning through Focused time to develop skills and Explicit targeting setting to monitor progress. This ensures skills are built sequentially across sessions and involve active forms of learning, such as: role-play, discussion and small group work, to practise skills.
