We currently have a small cohort of students who are withdrawn from lessons to complete Programme Work. This supports students with their social, emotional and mental health needs; for example, building self-esteem, conversational skills and anger management.
These programmes are designed collaboratively with the student. Prior to starting this work, the student completes an initial consultation document. Thus, every programme is fully individualised rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach. Our Programme Work is carefully monitored; every session is logged and we have an evaluation document to help us appraise the intervention.
We also offer informal interventions, such as comic strip conversations, beauty and self-care and weekly ‘check-ins’ which take place during tutor times and lunchtimes.
