‘Engaging pupils’ heads, hearts and hands’.
Horizon 360 is an EXTENDED NURTURE PROVISION for children in Barking and Dagenham with SEMH.
Situated within Gascoigne Primary School.
Pupils who would benefit from a targeted 14 week nurture intervention ending with supported transition back to their feeder school.
First cohort - October 2018
Second cohort - March 2019
Primary schools in LBBD refer to the Borough panel for a two-step allocation process, involving feeder school, families & Horizon 360.
If offered a place, Horizon 360 staff will work in partnership with pupils, families and referring schools to ensure that the intensive intervention program achieves maximum impact and that all parties are committed to supporting child to make positive changes.
Trust, communication, honesty and relationship building will underpin the process of collaborative working.
Staff/pupil ratio of 1:2, bespoke, holistic curriculum, engages pupils’ heads, hearts and hands, topic based, practical learning, exploring identity, emotional regulation, social skills and resilience.
Our aim is to intervene and provide much needed early intervention support to children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The strengths based intervention is based on extensive research literature designed to promote well-being and mental health. Pupils’ behaviour is understood as communication in the context of (unmet) SEMH needs. Their learning journey will be stimulating and developmentally appropriate.
Recognise ‘triggers’ and manage their emotions, facilitating an increase in positive emotional experience. Participate, try their best and overcome challenges to engagement.
Trust, share and cooperate with others, building positive relationships.
Experience a learning journey, creating both digital and physical evidence of their participation and progress.
Leave with an increased understanding of themselves, their strengths and a sense of accomplishment.
Progress will be measured using SDQ, observation, Thrive, pupil and family ‘voice’.
