Engagement centres

We offer targeted specialist educational support for young people aged 4-14 years who are having difficulties in school, this includes:

  • Lack of engagement e.g. not attending school
  • Students with additional needs that require extra support
  • Behavioural issues.

Referrals to the engagement centre are made by the school.

What do we offer?

  • 12 week programme (2 days per week) which supplements the student's education at their school
  • Access to education that focuses on social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties
  • Skills to help students cope and thrive within their current mainstream school
  • Knowledge, support and training for the student's existing school so that they can meet the student's needs on a long term basis
  • Timely access to specialist support and wider services e.g. educational psychologist, counselling.
