1:1 Outreach – bespoke packages:
Running throughout the academic year, our 1:1 bespoke outreach is a pastoral and academic programme designed to refocus and re-engage KS2, KS3 and KS4 pupils who have, for whatever reason, disengaged from mainstream education. The programme is designed to run alongside a pupil’s mainstream education, and schools are able to commission as many half or full days as they wish per week for a minimum of one term. The bespoke nature of the programme, allows schools, in collaboration with the Raedwald Trust, to shape individual packages to meet the needs of specific pupils. Once referred, we are able to allocate an appropriate setting at which to run the sessions – this may be a pupil’s home, mainstream school, a Raedwald Trust centre or an appropriate community setting.
Group intervention programmes – The Refocus Project:
The Refocus Project is a KS 3 & KS4 pastoral and academic programme designed to refocus pupils whilst encouraging positive life choices.

Group intervention programmes – The Resilience Project:

Bespoke group intervention programmes – KS2, KS3 & KS4:
Similar group intervention programmes are available to schools who wish to make referrals for a minimum of 5 pupils per year group (KS2, KS3 & KS4) for a minimum period of one term.
