Student Support Centre

The Student Support Centre (SSC) is run by Mrs L Goodman and it provide intervention for students who need extra support because they may have issues which are affecting their learning, such as attendance, punctuality, social, emotional or behavioural. They may be referred by a subject teacher because they are struggling with the work or the content of the topic being taught or simply need time out because of barriers caused by lack of confidence, distractions or poor organisational skills. In the SSC they will receive very specific support and mentoring for a period of 2 weeks initially to help them overcome their difficulties. A transition period with support will then allow the student to return to subject hopefully with better coping strategies and able to progress with their studies. The SSC also provides a safe haven for the more vulnerable student, a quiet, calm environment, where they can go for time out if necessary.
