eradicating chronic disengagement,
one child at a time
We deliver bespoke education interventions to anyone missing education for any reason at all - school refusers, those with SEND or SEMH needs, Looked After Children, young people with low self-esteem or aspirations - we support anyone who is struggling.
Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne but extending our reach nationally, we are passionate about supporting local authorities, CCG's, schools, social work teams, parents and carers, in working with the most challenging students to prevent and de-escalate crisis.
Our holistic interventions strive to overcome any barrier to learning whether social, emotional, behavioural or otherwise. We work with young people of all ages and at any point during the year - usually 1:1, sometimes in small groups. We assess academic levels, baseline cognitive and emotional capacity and take time to understand each young person’s story. We learn from our students before we teach them. We also work closely with their families, care teams and schools to make sure that they transition to a place of stability, whatever that means for them.
Although each student is unique (making each intervention unique) they do share one thing in common: the right to education and to finding their path in life. We believe inclusion, not exclusion, is the answer.
