Well Being

“Education Links keeps my child safe”


The response from 100% of parents, Parent Survey 2011

Our students’ well being is paramount to our success as an alternative provision free school. 96 percent of our students feel safe in school (Education Links Student Survey 2011) and they identify school as the area of their lives they are most satisfied with when compared to other areas (Education Links Well Being survey 2012).  We identify the following reasons for this: -

• Small learning groups of 10/12 students with a minimum of 2 staff in any lesson, allowing for time to listen to individuals and build close relationships with them and their families

• Close mentoring of each student allowing them to reflect on their behaviour and attitude towards school

• Fully integrated Well Being Curriculum which runs at the core of our provision with dedicated weekly sessions to look at such issues as gangs, knife crime, sexual health, mental health, drugs and employability

• On-site fully trained therapist from CFCS (Child and Family Consultation Services)

• Close working relationships with CSSS (Child Substance Support Services) and SHINE NHS sexual health service for under 25s

• Tailored and intense careers advice with links to employment services and corporate organisations who facilitate specialist workshops in CV writing and employability

• Comprehensive training for staff allowing for the best support to be given to each student

• All support staff trained in Learning, Development and Support Services, also drug use and abuse, as well as Safeguarding and First Aid

• Opportunities for the student council to share their voice and interview new staff

• Student satisfaction questionnaire and well being measure used to gather student opinion and feelings
