Behavioural Social & Emotional Difficulties

Students with Behavioural or Emotional and Social difficulties include those that struggle in the mainstream environment because of behavioural difficulties, anxiety or external factors. BESD students are managed by a specialist leader who will facilitate additional support, where needed.

The Learning Centre is a facility for students who have been identified as needing to reduce their access to their mainstream lessons. The lessons in the Learning Centre focus on emotional and social development and are taught in small groups. Access to this facility is through discussion with students, parents, class tutor and specialist leader and is on a short term, part time basis, directed at students mainly in KS3.

The school also provides counsellors for students that wish to access this service.

Further support is also provided for these students by their Year Team Leader, Headship Team and Specialist Leader for inclusion behaviour.
