Parent / Carer

Alternative education projects

In our experience, building good working relationships with parents/carers has been fundamental to working with our young people. It ensures all parties involved are clear on the steps that have been taken and on future direction. Working with parents/carers also ensures that EP is kept informed of any developments at home that may impact on the young person. We also contact parents to celebrate positive outcomes rather than to affirm negative ones.

Consistent communication with parents/carers is ensured through meetings, emails and telephone contact. We believe this to be paramount if the needs and abilities of the young person are to be accurately identified and assessed and the most appropriate support provided.

We have an unerring commitment to building relationships with parents/carers who are able to contact the Head 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Other staff are available between 7am and 7pm Monday to Friday.

Quote 04

“In such a small space of time this has unpicked why his behaviour has been so unmanageable how his refusal is linked to feeling he is going to get it wrong and the embarrassment he has experienced throughout most of his education. As a parent I am very grateful for this placement. For the first time in a long time my son can see he has real hope that he has for a future.”
