Student Support Centre
Our Student Support Team work with many of our students to remove any barriers to learning. Along with dealing with behavioural incidents, they also provide emotional support for a range of issues which include bereavement, anger management, mental health issues, self-harm and friendship problems.
Our Student Support Team, led by Mrs Payne (far left), work with students who require a bespoke form of support in order to keep them engaged in their learning.
This may include students who have been absent from school for periods of time or students who are struggling to make progress over a number of subjects. Their role is vital to ensure that all students leave St Julian’s with formal qualifications.
We are excited to share the news that we have a new Student Support Hwb, where all members of the Student Support team are located. The Support Hwb is available in the Tech Block for any students that need help with learning, wellbeing and attitudes.
Within school we have Learning Coaches that provide support on a 1-1 or small group setting: working with pupils to overcome Learning Barriers. They are able to offer support to pupils not working to a normal timetable and also support them in completing coursework and controlled assessments.
Our Learning Coaches provide individual guidance and coaching, helping pupils to develop study skills revision strategies and exam preparation. They also able to offer additional qualifications.
