If you would like any information further to the below, or to discuss how we can further support your child, please contact


Green Room

“Interventions don’t change lives, people do.” Mark Finnis, L30 Restorative Systems

The Re-engagement team works closely with the rest of the pastoral team to support students in and outside of school. We focus on working with students and families and building relationships. Referrals are normally made by year leaders, when they feel students would benefit from additional support. If parents feel their child would benefit from any of the programmes, then please discuss with their year leader.

We offer a range of group work and individual programs in our specialised Green Room intervention space. In addition to this, we also work with Pudsey Cluster to deliver the Take 3 Parenting course, and other agencies and provision where appropriate.

Our work is constantly changing to meet the needs of our students, so not all programmes will be running at the same time, and new programmes will be added. Programmes can also be modified to suit individual needs.
