At Belong School Gloucestershire, we will:

 

  • support children to be safe. We understand that some children require additional support and so will design everything we do to enable;
    • the emotional containment for students
    • the development of secure attachments
    • the repair of relationships when they break down
    • a safe and trusting relationship between adults and children
    • different environments in which to work, all of which are safe to the child
    • the child to be at the centre of their school

 

  • enable children to form positive relationships. We believe positive relationships are at the heart of successful lives and therefore will;
    • create a sense of belonging for all students
    • work with parents and/or carers to enable them to support the child/ren in their care
    • emphasise one to one work, where positive relationships are fostered
    • emphasise group work in a managed way, encouraging children to integrate and reintegrate at a level and location where they can succeed
    • pick the child up from home and drop them back there to encourage contact with parents and/or carers
    • provide specialist family and parenting support to strengthen family and home relationships and environments

 

  • focus on the progress and achievement of children. These will be assessed and measured to include:
    • evidencing the value we add to a child and their journey through education
    • support for parents and/or carers to support their child’s progress
    • a focus on literacy and numeracy, but a wider curriculum that is inclusive and encourages a inquisitive, learning mindset
    • using assessment tools to record progress on all outcomes whether they be personal, social or academic.
    • expecting the best from and for children, including in assessing them accurately, and providing a curriculum that brings the best out in them
    • encouraging children to achieve in formal qualifications

 

  • be life changing for children. This will include;
    • a varied, inclusive and enjoyable curriculum that inspires children to learn and love learning
    • expecting all children to complete GCSE’s, BtEC’s or equivalent qualifications and never settle for second best
    • deliver unit awards and entry level courses to enable young people to achieve and see success in the short term and see a pathway to accreditation
    • providing effective Career Information, Advice and Guidance to create clear learning pathways and to allow children to successfully move into the next phase of their life.
    • linking each child’s circumstances, abilities and ambitions to provide a pathway for them when they leave our support
    • supporting all children to develop and grow key life skills so they can thrive and prosper as adults in their society
