Our purpose:    

To provide quality education in a nurturing setting to vulnerable young people who are disengaged from education; and to help remove or reduce the barriers which prevent them from achieving their full potential.

 

Our values

At the Personal Learning Centre we teach our students to ASPIRE to be their best selves. We promote and value;

Aspirations

Self-belief

Progression

Individuality

Resilience

Enjoyment

 

Our beliefs:  

We strongly believe that one size does not fit all for our students. Every one of our students is unique and deserves a curriculum and experience which is designed to meet their specific needs and to develop their skills and talents. We believe that an alternative provision must help to remove or reduce the barriers that some students are challenged with in a mainstream setting; but must be equal in standards and expectations to our mainstream partners.

We believe that individuals will flourish if they feel safe, valued, and happy. We build good relationships with our students who are taught to become resilient, confident learners within a consistent environment of unconditional positive regard and one which recognises and celebrates achievements.
