Supporting Individual Needs

The Bridge is a provision in the Academy where pupils suffering from physical or mental health difficulties can be taught in a smaller setting. Pupils working in The Bridge follow their normal timetable and work is provided by their subject teachers.

The Personalised Learning Centre (PLC) is a provision which supports pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Pupils in the PLC also follow a broad curriculum but access more personal development opportunities in order to support their return to the mainstream setting.

We have six Learning Support Assistants and are in receipt of inclusion funding from the Local Authority to provide additional staffing.  This enables pupils with SEND to follow a full curriculum pathway in a mainstream setting.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead provides pupils with access to a range of external agency support. School nurses visit every week and run drop in clinics.  We also work with ERYC as part of an early intervention project to avoid young people disengaging with education and falling into criminal activity. As a school we utilise several agencies to assist our young people including, YFS, Childrens Social Care, PET, MIND, CAMHs, DVAP, Youth Action, ISPHN (Nursing Team), Humberside Police, CYPSS, local Children’s Centres amongst many others as needs dictate. We also complete regular welfare checks on our students and provide free breakfasts for all students, as we strive for a complete wrap-around care for all.
