Welfare Rooms

Reflection Room – Room 6-2

PURPOSE:  This is a room located in the Inclusion Hub which is a quiet place for KS3 and 4 pupils to access if they find times of the day challenging. This room is a safe place for pupils who have found it difficult to be part of a normal lesson, the School community in general or in a crisis situation, in order to support and encourage them to improve their attitude to learning, their behavior and their ability to learn. Here members of trained staff will work with the learners to reflect on the issues in question and give them the opportunity to express themselves calmly before referring the case on to a member of the welfare staff.

 

EFFECT: Reduce referrals and improve pupils' engagement with the School environment. Pupils will have the opportunity to reflect and express any negative feelings and emotions.  The hope is that all pupils can rejoin the School environment as soon as possible when they have brought their emotions under control where they can resume their learning.

Dulas Class

PURPOSE: We understand very well that this transition period is a very big step in your child's academic development and as a result, we have recognized the need to establish a transformative learning group in Years 7 and 8 for September in order to support some pupils who find changes is difficult. Dulas is located in a classroom in Hwb (stairs 6) and is taught by an experienced teacher in the field of ALN. In addition, pupils in Dulas class will have access to the team of class assistants who work from the Hub and provide differentiated support across the curriculum as well as targeted interventions in Literacy, Numeracy and Wellbeing.
