Student Support Centre
The Student Support Centre (SSC) run by Mrs L Goodman provides an intervention for students who need extra support due to issues affecting their learning, such as; attendance, punctuality, social, emotional or behavioural. Students 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 Student Support Centre they will receive very specific support and mentoring for an initial period of 2 weeks to help them overcome their difficulties. A supported transition period will then allow the student to return to subject hopefully with better coping strategies and able to progress with their studies. The Student Support Centre also provides a safe haven for the more vulnerable student, a quiet, calm environment, where they can go for time out if necessary.
