Once Kettlebrook Short Stay School has been approached with a fully completed referral form and a place has been agreed by the Headteacher the following induction process is started.
Each student and their family will have a home visit from a member of our Senior Leadership Team. This is to meet each other and start to establish a good positive working relationship.
A pre-admissions meeting will be arranged between the student and family and the Headteacher. This is to meet and continue to establish the positive working relationship to ensure that each student achieves the success that they each deserve. It also establishes what the Individual Learning Plan and future plans are going to be. It also helps with a clear explanation of what options are available.
Each Student will start Kettlebrook with a general short induction programme on a 1:1 basis, which is usually over three / four days which includes some key assessments and start to establish good positive working relationships with the staff. It is a time to settle in and start a new way of learning and wanting to learn.
Each student will then start their Individual Learning Plan and begin their new learning journey.
