Child-centred, trauma-informed learning solutions

We commit ourselves each day to re-engaging young people with their development. Our aim is not only to educate, but to equip these individuals with the tools necessary for successful futures, acknowledging, respecting, and responding to their voices throughout the process.

Specialist 1:1 and group support

Highly experienced teachers utilise a trauma-informed approach to provide personalised provision and mentorship, considering each young person’s unique circumstances, experiences, and emotional needs in the learning process.

Relational Learning
Fostering a deeper understanding and meaningful connection with the young person and their subject matter, transforming learning into a personalised, interactive, and holistic experience.
Embedded in Relational Learning is mentoring: providing guidance, support, and encouragement, empowering young people to unlock their potential and navigate their own unique path to success.

Reintegration into mainstream education settings

We support young people in their transition back into mainstream or special educational environments, preparing them with the necessary skills, confidence, and resilience to thrive in these settings.

Supporting transitions
Through building relationships and trust, we encourage young people to realise their potential and ambitions, guiding them through the skills they need.
Improving attendance
Pupils with SEND and/or SEMH needs, as well as young carers and those with a history of exclusion are at a higher risk of absence from school. We support them to come to school more often.

Relational Learning which meets complex SEND and SEMH needs

Our approach is rooted in the conviction that the fundamental objective of education is to encourage the maximum cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and ethical development in each child.

We acknowledge the distinct and evolving needs of young people and therefore offer flexible, personalised, and child-centred provisions that genuinely comprehend each child's story, experiences, and strengths.

SEND Support
Our experienced tutors are adept at working with young people with diverse needs across physical disabilities, sensory impairments, developmental delays and behavioural difficulties.
SEMH Support
Tutors work closely with individuals to develop their ability to manage and regulate emotions, establish positive relationships and cope with challenges and stress.

Where tutors’ skills and young people's needs harmonise

While 1:1 tutoring can provide a personalised learning experience tailored to individual needs, relational learning goes a step further by creating a nurturing, emotionally safe environment that fosters learning. This approach understands that young people, particularly those with adverse childhood experiences and SEND, need more than just academic support.

In a relational learning environment, tutors focus on building trust-based relationships, acknowledging young people's feelings, validating their experiences, and respecting their individuality. This supportive atmosphere encourages students to express themselves freely, enhancing their engagement and motivation to learn.

In essence, our trauma-informed practice acknowledges the complex impacts of trauma and emphasises the importance of safety, trustworthiness, collaboration, and empowerment in fostering resilience and enhancing educational outcomes.

What is Relational Learning in this context?

In a traditional 1:1 tutoring setting, a tutor might present a maths problem and directly guide their student through the steps to solve it. The focus is mainly on the procedure and finding a binary, correct answer.

In a relational learning context, our tutors begin by understanding the young person's feelings towards maths and any anxieties they have about the topic. They might share a story about how maths is used in real life, creating a connection between the young person's world and the problem at hand.

When a trusting relationship is built, our tutors encourage young people to explain their thinking process as they solve the problem, fostering a dialogue that deepens their understanding. The focus isn't just on the right answer, but the learning journey itself.
