Challenging Behaviour Management

How we work


At Releasing Potential School new referrals are placed with us for a six week part-time assessment period, after which their placement will be confirmed or the assessment period may be extended. Once a student has been formally offered a place at Releasing Potential School, they will access a bespoke programme that suits their individual needs. Students’ programmes are made up of a combination of the following elements. 

Small Group Provision

Our Engage provision is based on site in small groups with a student to staff ratio of 2:1. Engage offers academic subjects and classroom based learning with a consistent Tutor and timetable.


1: 1 Mentoring

Students access mentoring with a key member of staff on a 1:1 basis. This can be on or off site, as part of our Activation provision (where several 1:1s come together) or as a regular 1:1 day or days.

Work Placement

Students in years 9-13 can access work placement opportunities in real businesses. Students are supported by school staff who help to manage behaviour and embed the curriculum.

Distance Learning

Students who struggle to engage with either a group or 1:1 environment are supported by specialist tutors. Students complete a range of subjects via online modules.
