The CMAS School will:

 

  • support young people to be safe. We understand that some young people require additional support and so will design everything we do to enable;
    • the emotional containment for students
    • the development of secure attachments
    • the repair of relationships when they break down
    • a safe and trusting relationship between adults and young people
    • different environments in which to work, all of which are safe to the young person
    • the young people being at the centre of their school

 

  • enable young people to form positive relationships. We believe positive relationships are at the heart of successful lives and therefore will;
    • create a sense of belonging for all students
    • work with parents and/or carers to enable them to support the young people in their care
    • emphasise one to one work, where positive relationships are fostered
    • emphasise group work in a managed way, encouraging young people to integrate and reintegrate at a level and location where they can succeed
    • pick the young people up from home and drop them back there, as far as is reasonably possible, to encourage contact with parents and/or carers
    • provide specialist family and parenting suppport to strengthen family and home relationships and environments

    • evidencing the value we add to a young person and their journey through education
