Head of Centre's Welcome


Here at KHSC, our aim is to equip students with the necessary skills to achieve their full potential. We strive to embed respect and the ability to tolerate each other and the differences at home, school and in the wider community. We promote courage and self belief with a strong emphasis on health and well-being.


Usually, our placements are for two full academic terms, which is approximately a period of 6 months. Of course this is aspirational and we know that every child is different. We understand that it may take some children longer to be able to improve and build upon positive strategies that will help them to manage their emotions and behaviour before they are ready to return to mainstream school full time. Placements are taken up on a dual registered capacity, attending part of the day at the support centre and part of the day at their mainstream school.


During placement all staff work hard together to develop positive and effective relationships with the pupils and their parents and to ensure that pupils have a positive and successful experience while accessing this provision. We welcome visits, aim to provide outreach to school when appropriate and believe that this strength in communication is important.


Through demonstrating the drive and commitment to the process and encouraging students to respect the boundaries and expectations set by schools and our provision, we aim to prove that anything is possible.
