Mrs Igoe is the school’s Inclusion Manager. From September 2013, we introduced a new system, which gives us extra capacity to support students. Essentially, there are three rooms:


ISOLATION ROOM

This is used to deal with immediate issues in school and for offences such as defiance, as an alternative to a fixed-term exclusion.


INCLUSION ROOM

This is run by Mrs Igoe and is used as an alternative or in addition to a fixed-term exclusion. This room gives us the capacity to work with students and identify causes of challenging behaviour and put tailored programmes in place to support them.


STUDENT SUPPORT ROOM

Mrs Blaylock runs the Study Support Room, which is used to support vulnerable students and re-integrate them back into school life.


The table below explains how the school’s Inclusion Department and Study Support Centre function. These rooms are key in supporting students with a range of needs.
