eradicating chronic disengagement,
one child at a time
We design and deliver bespoke academic and therapeutic interventions for anyone who is temporarily or permanently disengaged from school, with SEND or SEMH needs, refusing to attend or not in education, employment or training (NEET) for any reason at all.
Everyone is different and each of our interventions are too. Our tailored programmes strive to overcome any barrier to learning whether social, emotional, behavioural or otherwise. We work with students of all ages and at any point during the year - usually 1:1, sometimes in small groups. We assess their academic levels, baseline their cognitive and emotional capacity and take time to understand their story. We learn from our students before we teach them, working closely with families, care teams and schools to see that they transition to a place of stability, whatever that may mean for them.
Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne but extending our reach nationally, we are passionate about supporting local authorities, CCG's and schools to work with the most challenging students in preventing and de-escalating crisis. We believe that life is worth living and living well. Each child we work with has a unique reason behind their disengagement yet they all share one thing in common: the right to education and to finding their path in life.
We believe inclusion, not exclusion, is the answer.
We exist to eradicate disengagement from the face of the education sector, one child at a time.
