Our Therapeutic Inclusion Unit caters for young people who have been unable to thrive within mainstream school, due to their complex social and emotional needs.

We aim to provide a holistic therapeutic learning environment for young people with complex needs to enable them to develop skills, qualifications and aspirations.

Our team works together to enable learners to feel able to express their interests and motivations. We encourage a greater awareness of self, strengthening connections within themselves and with others. We aim to build resilience and flexibility for improved wellbeing, supporting sustainable change.

It is ideal for learners who have:

  • Social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
  • ASD or aspergers
  • Mental health issues such as anxiety
  • Suffered from Trauma
  • Complex presenting needs.
  • We work with learners who may display the following behaviours:
  • withdrawn, depressed, isolated
  • Vulnerable
  • Difficulty socialising and working in groups
  • Unable to manage strong emotions appropriately that leads to anti-social behaviour
  • Overwhelming anxiety

We work with the family network through regular communication with home. We aim to reflect each families background and diversity through our personalised projects and community discussions. We support parents/carers by signposting local services and work with other agencies to achieve the best outcomes for our learners.


All learners are allocated a keyworker who is a member of the staff during their induction period who will provide a weekly report for the school and the parent/carers to help monitor progress.

Active Support also has a bespoke wellbeing monitoring system that can identify “soft skills” areas where individuals need additional help. This may include social skills, resilience, communication and language. The system helps to track progress made in these areas and can be used to report at education and health care plan reviews.

“The core features enable each young person to become more connected with themselves, their family, their community and their learning by developing their strength, flexibility and resilience for a balanced and positive future.
