What support will there be for my child’s overall wellbeing?

At Priestlands, students and parents will be at the heart of decision-making, ensuring high quality individual education pathways are carefully planned around the specific needs of the student.

Our individual education pathways put a greater emphasis on understanding and addressing students’ wider needs, resulting in a more personalised approach.

We believe in working in partnership with parents.

We will appoint a member of staff to the role of keyworker to liaise with and support every student identified at Wave 2 and Wave 3 whilst attending Priestlands.

We have a highly motivated, enthusiastic team of colleagues including Pastoral Support Managers, Emotional Literacy Support Assistants and Achievement Support Assistants (ASA).
