The Emscote School provides targeted interventions for students . It is important to note that students identified for intervention are not always lower attaining children but are identified across a range of groups and are selected when teaching staff and senior leaders believe they have the capacity for further or accelerated progress at a given point.
The Emscote School wants to make sure that all our students do as well as can and achieve their full potential. By providing bespoke packages of targeted interventions, we aim to improve the outcomes of our students.
Young people spend a great deal of time at school. The Emscote School recognises it has an important role to play in their development. Time spent in school impacts not just on academic and cognitive progress, but also on social interactions, peer relationships, emotional regulation and behaviour.
At the Emscote School we want everyone involved with our school to feel well supported. We believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each child. We aim to build trusting and empathic relationships with all our pupils and their families.
Together, our team works with students so they can lead fulfilling and balanced lives at school and beyond. All our staff model to students how to look after themselves and others; encouraging them to seek help, support or advice whenever they need it.
Pastoral care underpins personal development and we know from experience that with outstanding pastoral care, students feel they belong and their self-esteem can flourish because they feel valued and cared for.
Supporting the pastoral needs of pupils sometimes involves working with external agencies. In these situations, we ensure that a confidential, professional, non-judgemental and sensitive service is provided.
Our Pastoral support provides an open-door policy allowing students to come in and chat about issues or problems that they face.
What people say about us
I have seen my daughter develop from a moody teenager into a young woman who is keen to succeed and be independent.
The small class sizes really help, my son gets the attention he needs - he seems so much happier.
Why wasn't this around for me? It feels like someone understands what she's going through.
The staff quickly became my family because they listened. I was able to talk to them and be sure they would help me when I had an issue, even if that was from outside school.
To watch students come through the door with very little hope in their education to then leave with a real sense of belonging and achievement is the most rewarding part of my role.
