Specialist support is available to all students who need it, whether they have special educational needs or have missed periods of study due to illness.

Personalised Learning Centre

The Personalised Learning Centre (PLC) helps to improve the prospects of students who have missed long periods at school, because of ill health or because they struggle to cope with conventional schooling. 

While in the unit, students get help with schoolwork or take part in a range of activities, designed to develop skills, confidence and team spirit outside of the classroom.

Specialist Teaching Service

Referrals to the Specialist Teaching Service are usually through the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Mrs Arnold. This outreach service ensures that students with visual impairments, hearing problems, autism or similar difficulties receive the help they need.

Referrals to Child and Mental Health Service

These referrals generally come from a student’s GP, the school nurse or the pastoral staff at Ashby School.

Open Door Counselling

A drop-in counselling service – known as 'open door counselling' – is available to students every Monday. The sessions, which are run by qualified counsellors, give students an opportunity to share problems and fears, and to look for ways to address them.

Alternative Curriculum

The school aims to provide an education to suit every child. For students whose needs are not met by mainstream education, there are alternative curriculum options to ensure that every child succeeds at some level.
These include work placements, vocational studies and involvement in community projects.

Gardening is one of the options offered by the Alternative Curriculum.
