Introduction

The Magpie Learning Centre provides education for pupils aged 9-14 who are finding it difficult to access education in their own school due to mental and / or physical health. There are two different pathways available at the Magpie Learning Centre.  Full time pupils follow a personalised timetable comprising both academic and therapeutic elements. Those attending one of our part-time intervention groups will have a timetable designed to meet their specific needs.

EARLY INTERVENTION – 9-14 YEARS (PART TIME)

For some children, attendance at school may be impacted by health issues including anxiety and mental health problems. If concerns are not addressed at an early stage, they can affect progress, outcomes and the transition process to secondary school or beyond. Short-term placements are available for pupils aged 9-14 years at our Magpie Learning Centre. Pupils will attend their home school alongside their days at the Magpie.

FULL TIME PLACES – 11-14 YEARS

The Magpie Learning Centre also offers full time education for students aged 11-14 who are unable to access education in their own school for medical reasons. Each student has a personalised timetable comprising core and foundation subjects. We also offer Arts Award, a vocational element, and a therapeutic curriculum, as appropriate. Individual timetables are designed to meet students’ academic needs, whilst taking account of health and emotional factors
