Educational Provisions within Haybrook College
Young people attending Haybrook College have a wide range of learning needs and we are passionate about providing educational and therapeutic support to meet those needs.
Each centre within Haybrook College has a slightly different focus and curriculum designed to achieve the best possible outcomes.
The predominant feature of our young people is their inability to self-regulate their behaviour linked to their Social, Emotional Mental Health difficulties (SEMH), for which many have Educational, Health and Care Plan's (EHCP).
Working alongside a team of specialist therapists, including Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and our internal interventions team, our staff are well trained to support and develop our young people to better regulate their behaviour and focus on learning.
Below is a brief description of the KS3 and KS4 alternative provision centres. If you click on the provision name, it will take you to the page on the main Haybrook website, which has more information.
Activate offers a vocational and work-related programme for KS4 students which enables them to follow appropriate courses at college, enter employment and/or training. They also follow an extended work experience programme each year with local employers in Slough to gain an understanding of the world of work and to gain valuable skills for the future.
Our programme is centred around enabling key stage three pupils to re-engage in the process of education and learning; offering a full time education for pupils who, for a variety of reasons, have found mainstream environment challenging. We strive to engage pupils in learning which will enable them to recover and return back into a mainstream environment with more tools to be successful. Our varied curriculum - including core subjects as well as kitchen craft, forest school and Act to Improve Ltd, allows pupils to continue on their learning path during their time at Interim, which also supports the success of their reintegration back into their mainstream school and adult life.
Springboard provides an alternative full time education for KS4 pupils who have been referred from mainstream schools and are at risk of, or have been, permanently excluded.
Each pupil’s timetable is fixed but flexible and can be tailored to meet an individual pupil’s learning and behavioural needs. The pupils are supported by Sports Coach Mentors who act as their co-tutors, monitoring their attendance, learning and behaviour, providing the pupils, and parents, with regular updates via telephone calls, text messages and written communication.
