We support young people aged 11-17 years with a maximum number of 12 students to progress and succeed in their education.
Our Vision
Our vision is to provide a safe, positive, and structured environment in which young people can grow both emotionally and academically.

Here at the Moorfield Learning and Community Hub we work to provide the best possible learning outcomes for our young people who may currently struggle with mainstream education establishments. This could be missing education due to, illness, mental health, behavioural and emotional issues or have experienced difficulties with their learning. Whilst doing this our aim where possible is to reintegrate our pupils back to mainstream or an alternate learning provision.

We provide support in the exclusion process, which can be either short or long term, working with schools and pupils to reduce the risk to use fixed or permanent exclusion penalties or pupils who may be currently permanently excluded. We do this by adopting a multi-disciplinary approach to early intervention supporting the school, parents, carers, and individual pupils.

Our approach includes both academic and behaviour assessments, and from these a programme will be established. Our programme will include ‘an academic strand’ including Numeracy and Literacy. An ‘emotional literacy strand’ including strategies for coping in school, managing feelings and social skills and self-reflection. The ‘practical strand’ including education, art, outings, and outdoor education.

It uses a step-by-step approach to understand and manage anxiety and improve low self-esteem. STILL does not just teach children to relax, it gives them tools to face challenges and feel empowered. The STILL Method is fun and engaging, it teaches children to develop and overcome anxiety. STILL is an easy to follow, methodical approach, to understanding and supporting children with anxiety. By learning the STILL method, you will find out what anxiety is and what causes it. You will know how to provide children with tools to face challenges and feel empowered.
