Other notes

 Our aim is to work in partnership with schools to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for students who may be at risk of exclusion or need some additional support.  We offer a high quality learning programme, focusing on students’ individual needs, and by offering strategies to manage these barriers.  We also support children with SEN.

We provide the additional support to avoid exclusion either in school or at our centre.   By identifying the concerns and putting in the interventions, we aim to avoid costly exclusions which negatively impact on the child / young person.  We tailor our support to meet your needs..  

We support social work teams in providing emergency support including 'out of hours', supervised contacts at our centre in  Buckfastleigh or in the community, Family Support and provide animal therapy to support our programmes.
