Student Support Centre

The Student Support Centre is a well established and highly regarded provision within Coventry and nationally. We recognise and value diversity in our students and offer a  range of interventions to cater for identified needs both within lessons and on an individual basis or in small groups. A team of specialist staff support students across the school whatever their particular need. In practice this means that students are offered provision that is ‘different from or in addition to’ the mainstream curriculum offered to every student.

We work with a large number of students, sometimes throughout their whole school life, sometimes for a fixed period of time. The range of provision includes:

  • Support for Special Educational Needs
  • Basic literacy and numeracy
  • Dyslexia– specific programmes
  • Personalised support for those with autism
  • Emotional Literacy
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Mentoring
  • Behaviour Support
  • Support  for course work and controlled assessments
  • Breakfast and lunch time clubs
  • Support for Ethnic Minority Achievement
  • A designated Speech and Language base
  • Work Related Learning linked with specialist providers
  • Support for students with medical needs who might need a short spell away from mainstream lessons

The support team works in partnership with College Leaders, College Managers, subject teachers, Parents and outside agencies to help students to reach their full potential.
