For some students, the signs of struggle within a mainstream learning environment may not be severe enough to demand a time outside of school. Our prevention program offers a tailored needs approach to an individual school or student to support early intervention when issues are arising.
Referring schools (primary and secondary) and Senior Team at Positive about Young People will collaborate together to create a short term intervention package that is specifically tailored to the individual needs of the student, or small group of students.
The program will be implemented within the home school building. That can be designed for 1-3 students at a time dependant on the school’s request.
The content of these sessions is directed by the school, and needs of the student. Interventions in national curriculum topics, but also in;
- Self esteem
- Drug and Alcohol awareness
- Stress management
- Healthy Relationships
- Social Skills
In some cases, provided appropriate Risk Assessments have been put in place, these sessions can take place within the home of the student should they be classed as a Child Missing from Education, bridging the gap between school and individual.
Historically PaYP had the lead in Warwickshire running the Youth Inclusion Support Panels (YISP), and have a view to deliver a similar project within secondary and primary schools.

What people say about us
I have seen my daughter develop from a moody teenager into a young woman who is keen to succeed and be independent.
The small class sizes really help, my son gets the attention he needs - he seems so much happier.
Why wasn't this around for me? It feels like someone understands what she's going through.
The staff quickly became my family because they listened. I was able to talk to them and be sure they would help me when I had an issue, even if that was from outside school.
Working at PaYP gives me a chance to support students who otherwise might fall the cracks of mainstream education. Working here gives me the best type of challenge.
