Providing cost effective solutions to help schools deal with challenging students...

In every school a small but significant number of students with complex issues present real challenges for senior management as to how best to meet their education needs and comply with statutory requirements.

Education Pathways is an innovative provider set up by highly specialised teachers who have many years experience working with schools to teach and support challenging students and for those whom attendance at school is an issue.

Increasing demands on school budgets and sustained cutbacks to Local Authority support services mean that it is increasingly difficult to finance the costs associated with hard to engage students. Education Pathways can ensure continuity of education and support reintegration in the most cost effective way possible.

Students of primary or secondary age may be referred to the service for many reasons including though not exclusively those...

  • Who are not currently accessing education

    • persistent and long term absences are complex issues. We have many years experience working with disaffected students and have proven success in reintegrating them back in to school.

  • Who are disengaged

    • early intervention with disadvantaged or hard to reach students can help mitigate long term problems.

  • Who are identified as being"at risk" of becoming a school refuser

    • we frequently work alongside school staff and other agencies to teach and support students who are in danger of becoming a school refuser.

  • Whose challenging behaviour makes it difficult for them to be taught in school
    • we firmly believe that every student, however challenging can, with patience, guidance and a targeted learning programme, realise their potential. Teaching can take place off site at an appropriate venue such as the local library, childrens centre or in the home.
  • Who may be in danger of exclusion

    • permanent exclusion is a last resort. A fixed, short term exclusion maybe a more appropriate sanction which allows the  student to continue with their education.

  • Who can not attend school for medical reasons, including mental health issues
    • having worked for the Medical Needs Service for many years we have a great deal of experience working with students whose physical or mental health has prevented them from attending school.
  • Who need targeted support for literacy and or numeracy

    •  we have developed numerous proactive intervention programmes for literacy and numeracy which can help prevent  future complications  for a students academic and social development.
