Alternate Provision for Secondary Students
Is your school experiencing the impact of nationally rising rates of mental health disorders?
How much would your work change if your students were receiving engaging weekly therapeutic coaching?
Are you looking for evidenced support for students with low self esteem, challenging behaviour or adverse circumstances?
BroadTree exists to help all secondary age students flourish and succeed. We make it easy for schools to provide evidenced reasonable adjustments that genuinely work, which remain effective long after we’ve left.
We offer 1:1 or group sessions depending on need, and have seen incredible transformations and growth in the children we’ve worked with.
What makes us different?
Our approach is relational, respectful and encourages students to take ownership of their situation. We use role modelling to help young people learn skills like effective communication and behaviour, self awareness, and self regulation. Our support is strategically designed to improve behaviour and attitudes, and enhance personal development- new OFSTED categories from September 2019.
We create positive learning experiences with activities like fire lighting, knife & tool use, team games and trust activities as vehicles to explore reflection, teamwork and appropriate behaviour. We find this taps into students’ intrinsic motivation, and empowers them to remove the roadblocks that stop them progressing- meaning when we finish, students continue to flourish.
We’re told we get chosen because our sessions are enjoyable, safe, and our child centred approach has a positive impact on the behaviour and wellbeing of those attending.
We guarantee your students will have enjoyable sessions where they build their confidence, improve their ability to contain themselves and experience learning and trying new things in a positive way. We’re proud of our uniquely supportive, trauma informed approach, and are currently working with a local secondary school and have seen massive improvements with the students we support there, and have capacity to offer sessions to other schools.
Working Together- Forest School & Traditional Education
There are no shortcuts or golden bullets in this work, so our group and individual work is a minimum of 6 weekly sessions, with a group session length of 2-4 hours, planned as a consistent group of both students and assistants.
Our sessions help students improve their resilience, self esteem and emotional literacy. We find improvements in these areas naturally lead to improved wellbeing, behaviour and results.
We’ve found the optimal group size to be between 10 and 12, and take a maximum of 12 students per session. We provide schools with detailed session feedback and progress reports so you can further tailor the support your students receive.
We currently work with a large secondary school in Bath with excellent results and feedback, and currently have capacity to provide sessions to other schools. Sessions happen at our site by Lansdown Racecourse in Bath, at your school grounds, or on appropriate land near your school.
Schools provide an insured member of staff that knows how to have fun, and appropriately dressed students. We provide all kit, activities, risk assessments, and an appropriately trained session leader. Our staff are DBS checked, qualified and BroadTree are fully insured should anything happen.
