Haringey Learning Partnership

Overview of services we offer

 

1. Outreach Services 

  • A specialist team works with mainstream schools to support students at risk of exclusion and prevent escalation wherever possible. The programme lasts approximately six to eight weeks depending on the level of need.
     
  • The service will have a particularly strong relationship with the nurture hubs. Additional support for primary to secondary transition is offered for all students who have been referred during Year 6 due to attend Haringey schools.

 

Offer 2. Respite & Reintegration Provision – Commerce House

 

  • Respite & Reintegration is for students who may benefit from a short period of time away from mainstream provision in order for them to reflect and to be equipped with support and strategies prior to return.
     
  • It is a placement with fixed start and end dates. Placements may be for a maximum of six weeks. The only exception to this is for students with a fixed term exclusion of longer than 5 days. Students stay on their school roll and return at the end.

 

Offer 3. Social, Emotional & Medical Needs – Pulford House

 

  • Social, Emotional & Medical Needs is for students who require highly specialist support in managing their physical or mental health including issues such as anxiety, self-harm and suicidal ideation. This is usually for a fixed period of time before a return to mainstream provision.
     
    All students undergo a full range of assessments on entry in order to evaluate attitudes to school and ascertain if there are any undiagnosed learning needs.
