Pastoral Care

At Alpha Learning we place the pastoral care and emotional support of our young people, at the very heart of everything that we do. Our smaller class sizes and emphasis on positive social interaction, enable staff to build outstanding relationships with students. Also, as we are often the link between home, school, key workers and other agency staff, we always ensure that a holistic approach to pastoral care and safeguarding is given and information sharing absolute. This being said, we always encourage independence and support the students in taking ownership of their future.
