Secondary (St. Albans, Harpenden, Welwyn, Hatfield & Hertsmere)
We provide Secondary Surgery as part of our commitment to early intervention for young people. Within the team we have a dedicated outreach worker who manages the role and provides solution focused mentoring, skills and strategies & signposting to additional support for a variety of issues.
Targeted support for young people is offered through 1:1 sessions once or twice a week when challenging behaviour is affecting their learning to a greater extent. We might see a Student more often if they are at risk of permanent exclusion, experiencing a traumatic event or transitional event such as a managed move. Occasionally it is appropriate to work with very small groups on challenging behaviour issues.
We can also deliver short interventions such as a return from exclusion programme or a managed move programme.
At the start of year 7, we work with all our secondary schools to support small groups of young people who have been identified as needing additional intervention during their move to secondary.
