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.

The 12 week strengths based intervention is based on extensive research literature designed to promote wellbeing 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.
Progress will be measured using Boxall profiles, SDQ, observation, pupil and family ‘voice’.
