Many students experience barriers to their learning, be this illness, mental health issues, learning difficulties, SEND or other underlying reasons. Our aim is to provide these students with a secure alternative provision that supports their educational needs while they are unable to make it into a mainstream establishment.
Our flexible learning approach gives students an element of control over the time and pace of their learning. Education is no longer restricted to school hours, allowing students to progress at their own rate away from the pressure of the classroom.
Students have access to live online support from our experienced team if they need assistance between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. Our qualified teachers will help guide your students through their lessons considering their current learning ability.
We offer audio support for auditory learners or students who struggle to read what is on the screen, this feature reads the content aloud and can be repeated as many times as the student needs.
Our lessons allow students to customise how they view the material. This includes text colour, background colour, text size and font type (including dyslexia-friendly font).
Teaching SEND pupils in mainstream classes
Managing the education of SEND pupils has always been a difficult topic.
In the past, these children have been ignored, moved into specialist SEND schools, moved back into mainstream schooling with or without additional support, provided with additional funding, had funding removed, taught in isolation units or excluded altogether.
