What We Do

Teaching and Learning

We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which enables learners to make progress within a nurturing environment. Since many of our learners have experienced significant gaps in their schooling we provide small class sizes and an after school homework club tailored to individual support needs.

Attendance

​Emotionally based school refusal leads to a cycle of anxiety and further lack of engagement with education. It is paramount that our learners develop the resilience to address any barriers to attendance. We offer 

  • ​Designated spaces within the school setting for short-term intervention work, wherever possible.
  • Dedicated support from our on-site attendance officer
  • Support for families through school or multi agency network
  • The opportunity for students to access additional 1:1 support from our team of Taskforce specialists ; which includes our Saffron Valley therapist team, youth worker, Family Workers and Speech and Language team
  • Half termly rewards for outstanding attendance
  • Regular letters to families to celebrate progress with attendance

PSHE

At Cotelands PSHE is an opportunity for the whole school to join together for tailored workshops which support our students to develop self esteem , self management skills and resilience.The sessions widen the students knowledge of how to keep themselves safe and healthy as well as developing their sense of themselves as important and useful members of both their school​ community and the wider world.

Re-integration

Behaviour for Learning
