Social skills/early intervention work
The Inclusion team works with a range of external agencies to ensure students have the pastoral care they need; these include – Off the Record, CAMHs, Young Carers Project, EWS and Social Services. The school has access to educational psychologists through Richmond Borough’s Achieving for Children.
The pastoral team run a range of internal pastoral support groups through the academic year for students with a common identified need, e.g. self-esteem, friendship groups etc. They also offer individualised one-to-one support for specific students.
A variety of interventions have been put in place to support students with behavioural, emotional and social needs. The list below highlights the interventions:
- 1 to 1 mentoring
- Lego therapy
- Social thinking
- Anger management
- Anxiety management
- Personal awareness (girls)
- Personal awareness (boys)
- Time out passes
- Self esteem group
It will be the ambition of the school to secure outstanding attendance, not only during our formal curriculum but also in our wide range of after school and out-of-hours activities.
All students will be encouraged to participate in a programme of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
In our short lifespan we have already gained the Bronze STARS Award and Bronze Healthy Schools
