Originally set up in 2011, GROW is an alternative education provision for a small number of children who are not learning and/or progressing in their current school because of the barriers caused by behaviour, emotional needs or social difficulties. GROW provides each child with a curriculum planned for their individual needs which is monitored and reviewed carefully. Links to the referring school continue throughout the placement. Children will work within the designated GROW space and within an identified mainstream class in the school leading to full reintegration back to their home school.
