At Redbridge Alternative Provision we recognise that students make the best academic progress when their emotional and social needs are met. Accordingly, we provide comprehensive pastoral care.

When a student begins work with us, they benefit from an initial, intensive meeting with our dedicated Pastoral, Behaviour & Welfare Lead who uses this time to assess their individual care needs. Resulting from this we can offer a diverse range of supportive interventions and intense wrap-around pastoral care.

Ongoing personal support with one of our Behaviour Mentors.
Weekly appointments with our Outreach Counsellor.
Regular appointments with our School Nurse.
Regular liaison with schools to ensure smooth reintegration of pupils and effective strategies for support.
Close liaison with a range of outside agencies including, Social Services, Youth Offending Service, Fusion, Early Intervention etc
The support of an Educational Welfare Officer.
Programme to raise student aspirations including careers input with the aim of ensuring suitable post-16 careers input.
Access to an Educational Psychologist and our own SENCO.

It is our firm belief that through the interventions indicated and by providing warm, caring, and supportive environment, we can maximise the academic success, happiness, well-being and future life-chances of each student in our care.
