WHS is a special school for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs
In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor literacy skills)
A. Many of the students have special educational needs that relate to various traumas that have affected their development
B. At their previous educational setting many students had poor attendance which led to poor prior attainment
C. Many of the students come from homes where there is a distrust of education, mainly through poor experience that the parents have faced, either in their own education or before a specialist placement was found to support their son’s SEND
D. A high percentage of the students need to have their emotional and pastoral needs met before they can fully re-engage with education
External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)
A. The LA are going through a great deal of change and this has placed pressure on the social care system which in turn has struggled to support parents with social care needs in the community.
Desired outcomes and how they will be measured
A. Improved engagement and attainment of students.

B. Increased social and emotional wellbeing. Success Criteria: Students being able to express emotions in age appropriate language and behaviours. Decrease in termly behavioural incidences recorded and exclusions. Reduced PI as students are able to express their emotions in context.
C. Increased attendance rates. Success Criteria: Attendance for all students will increase as therapy will be addressing underlying issues and the home will be better equipped to support the parents to help their children
D. Increased Numeracy and Literacy skills across the school. Success Criteria: Improvements throughout the school in students Numeracy and Literacy levels.
