Our Commitment

We are committed to providing all of the young people we support with a fresh relationship with learning and to achieve academic success whilst recognising the pressures schools and local authorities face to deliver more with less.

01
Personalisation

Every student we work with is treated as an individual and we work closely with school and local authority colleagues to try to provide the same opportunities to achieve their academic goals as their peers in mainstream school. We tailor our provision to the needs of the individual ensuring that however long they may be learning with us, their individual needs are understood and that they can enjoy their study in a safe, secure and supportive learning environment.

02
Flexibility

As your needs change from week to week, you require services that can respond quickly and efficiently to that change and at no additional cost to your school or service. We fully understand that the services you need to support your students must be scalable, able to flex up and down in response to demand and still ensure every student is treated as an individual, whether they are placed with us for days, weeks or years.

03
Transparency

Monitoring of student engagement and achievement starts with a 360º view of the individual. From real-time attendance and engagement data for offsite learners to individual and detailed cohort reporting, our comprehensive online reporting systems ensure all student data and tracking is available 24/7. Monitoring progress from baseline and regular assessment through to final examination, we provide a comprehensive approach to learning and progress assessment.

04
Best Value

Delivering and evidencing best value is a key part of any public sector commissioning process. With increasing demands on a pressurised budget, schools and local authorities face difficult decisions in the coming years to balance quality, progression, outcomes and the cost of alternative provision. Our costs start from as little as £8.20/hour and we offer our customers different pricing models that ensure they are able to respond to short, medium and long term demand for alternative provision and to increase or decrease the service provision as those needs change.

05
Quality

Excellence in our teaching and learning starts with strong academic leadership supported by extensive teaching experience in mainstream, SEN, alternative provision and online settings. We are firm believers in the transformative power of education and the value of an integrated and holistic pedagogy. Quality of teaching and learning is therefore underpinned by our curriculum and pedagogy which focuses on Learned Knowledge, Learning Skills and Learning Dispositions.

06
Security

We employ a comprehensive and pro-active approach to safeguarding and child protection for the vulnerable young people we support. That approach has been quality assured by numerous local authority commissioning processes and is strengthened by our secure online reporting systems. Our technical infrastructure uses cloud services built to ISO:27001 standards, providing the highest data security and offering increased flexibility, scalability and resilience. This ensures service continuity for all of our customers.

07
Partnership

We view our clients as partners in the delivery of our services. Our approach places the learner at the centre of that partnership, and we communicate directly with school and local authority professionals with honesty, integrity and transparency. We work pro-actively with all stakeholders to ensure the best possible outcomes for each individual learner.
