The REACH project has been fantastic for engaging our most challenging students. It provides them with opportunities to succeed outside the school environment and teaches crucial skills which they can use on their return to school to help build more positive relationships. The project challenges them to try new things and take risks without fear of failing, and even if they struggle it helps them realise that is all part of the learning process, thus building their resilience.
The staff at Reach are great at working alongside the school and have supported the students with difficulties in school and have always shown a willingness to attend meetings and provide feedback. Each week a report is produced which provides good evidence on the learning and gives the opportunity for dialogue and praise with the student.
