Positive about Young People are a fully inclusive independent school. We strive to ensure that all students achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).
Students with a special educational need are put on our SEND register. Staff are provided with information and guidance on how to support their needs.
Students with learning needs receive varying levels of support, although we aim for most support to be through high quality teaching and support in lessons.
Students receive additional provision to support their progress. Some of this is in school, such as mentoring, social skills groups, phonics or literacy intervention.
Some students receive additional support through external agencies, such as:
- Speech and Language Therapy
- Educational Psychology
- Sensory Support Service
- Communication and Interaction, including Autism, Support Service(CIASS)
- Counselling Services
Education, Health and Care Plans (Statement of Special Educational Needs)
Some students need the support provided through an Education, Health and Care Plan. This outlines the types of support a child should receive. The Education, Health and Care Plan and the student’s progress are reviewed each year.
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.
