Engagement and Outreach Team
We believe that all students can be successful with the right support in place.
For students with more bespoke requirements, our Engagement and Outreach Team provides high levels of support and specialised personal timetables. This system works around each student’s individual needs and interests and can include home visits, work in the community and enrichment.
Outreach students benefit from access to nationally recognised qualifications as well as mentoring and support in developing emotional regulation and improving social skills. Many of our Outreach and Engagement students find themselves able to attend mainstream college, or work-based training upon completing their time with us.
Our flexible outreach programmes can include a wide range of subjects, from Sports, to Music, Hair and Beauty to Mechanics, Cooking, Duke of Edinburgh and Boxing in addition to core subjects such as English, Maths and Science.
Whatever you want to study, SMS can find a suitable programme for you.
Parent comments 2020/2021
“I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done; you have changed my son’s life!”
“He would never leave the house – now he’s off to college and it’s all thanks to the hard work of your staff – you never stopped believing in him”
“This is the longest school placement he’s ever been able to hold down. I can’t believe the difference in him, thank you”
I just wanted to send some feedback for Gareth to thank him for all his hard work over these last few weeks. He has been very consistent with his work and trying to get **** to engage. He has been very supportive to the team by attending all meetings etc. He really does go above and beyond for the young people!”
