Just seeing the difference is so comforting, knowing he is experiencing the feeling he “belongs” somewhere at last.
Watching him unpeel the layers of the boy we have all missed so much. Even on his not so great days, he is doing so well.
His progress academically is fantastic, we are so proud of him and thankyou is a tiny word when exchange for the massive efforts from you, Vicki and everyone else involved.
Every single member of staff I have been around is a credit to the school. They are all calm focused and committed. I know you have a wealth of complex needs to deal with and yet it’s a happy school. I am so pleased my girls are part of this. Thank you both for setting up this amazing provision.
“We have a very excited lad ready for school! He has asked all weekend if he has school tomorrow bless him. Hats off to you both, I’ve not seen him this keen since primary, thankyou! 😍
“I feel so happy knowing when he leaves me in the morning, that he is relaxed and keen to go. We have our bubbly boy creeping back to us, makes me quite teary, its been so long”
For the first time in years, i look forward to emails from a school!
Alfie is so much happier and easy going. Even happy to chat about what has done! Its amazing!
You really are delving into the Alfie that we know and his potential, we are so thankful.
Any comments I make at any time, share away! If I can let others see what a difference in such a short time you have boosted Alfie’s confidence, it may help other anxious potential new pupils feel more at ease.
I love all the ways you are working with him, little but often. Fun but firm, its having such a positive effect, thankyou!
My son started at Educate U after a long journey. Over 2 years out of education. Not fitting in or being understood.
His anxiety too high to go out and self-esteem very low.
He has been at educate u for 5 months 100% attendance and engaging with staff and pupils, making friends.
He feels excepted, understood happy and safe which enables him to engage in education with support for both child and family. from amazing staff and strong leadership.
My son had been out of education for a long time, so it was a big step reintegrating him back into school, but from the moment i went to look around i felt instantly at ease.
The teachers have so much understanding, patience, empathy, and they really treat the children with such kindness. My boy had some initial struggles, which was expected but they worked so closely with myself to do everything in their powers to make him feel safe and secure. They have let him lead the way, listening to his worries and opinions and we have gradually worked up to him being in school full time! The opportunities the children get out in the community are amazing, swimming, horse riding, farm visits, mindfulness walks and hot chocolate at the parks. If i ever have any issues they are always there to speak to me and put my mind at ease, they really do welcome the whole family. The way the staff listen to the children and include them in the planning for their learning is also a great opportunity for the children. I cannot thank them all enough for what they have all done for us- my son finally looks forward to going to school and he is getting the education he deserves. Thank you, Educate U.
We have been a provider of Alternative Provision for Educate U since March 2020 working in partnership to offer children flexible and inspiring timetables. The Educate U team goes above and beyond with some of the most complex and vulnerable children to ensure they get the best possible education. Staff’s passion and commitment to positive outcomes for these children has been evident in all our work together.
My child struggled in mainstream education for many years & joining the Educate U family has made such a difference. For the first time ever, my child gets the support & education they deserve. The Educated U staff have gone above & beyond to make the school a happy nurturing environment. I just hope they add a 6th form!
