The HEART Centre is our inclusion support and well-being centre. The aim of the centre is to provide swift and timely support for our students whenever issues arise related to our HEART core values. The swift support will enable students to be a full and active part of our thriving learning community and help every single student to be happy, excellent, ambitious, respectful and tolerant which are of course, our HEART core values.
We have a skilful and experienced team of staff in the HEART Centre whose role it is to ensure that students can live our values and understand that support is always close by!
The HEART Centre Offer
HAPPINESS – If students are unhappy for any reason, then they will be referred for an appointment at our HAPPINESS AT HEART mental health and well-being support service. This is located in the HEART Centre.
EXCELLENCE – Our Uniform Loan Service is based in the HEART CENTRE and will allow students to correct any uniform issues. There will also be bookable appointments for any students who need support with adopting a positive mindset in the form of MINDFULNESS clinics.
AMBITION – any students who require Careers, Information and Guidance will be referred to our dedicated Careers Advisor 8 through the HEART Centre. This will help students who are unsure of their next steps or require help with applying for further education, employment or training.
RESPECT – any students who are referred to REFOCUS will be booked into the HEART CENTRE during the REFOCUS day for restorative work related to the poor choices that they made. Any students who demonstrate major breaches of the behaviour policy will be referred to our RESPECT PROGRAMMES and will be required to complete a programme over a period of two weeks. The programmes that we run include VIOLENCE PREVENTION, ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR and STAYING SAFE ONLINE.
TOLERANCE – on the very rare occasion that any of our students demonstrate racist, homophobic or derogatory behaviour then they will be referred to the HEART CENTRE to engage in a DIVERSITY EDUCATION PROGRAMME.
The Heart Centre also accommodates our Heart Inclusion Centre which accommodates our SEND services. For more information on SEND, please click here.
