Special Educational Needs


Releasing Potential School specialises in working with children with Special Educational Needs (S.E.N). Our students experience a range of barriers to full inclusion in mainstream opportunities, and present with Social Emotional Behavioural Difficulties and/or Emotional Vulnerability.

We have developed strategies, over many years of experience in this sector, to support students in managing their responses to stress and anxiety; in turn they are able to make progress in academic and social areas. We specialise in working with students with behavioural problems as well as those at high risk of Child Sexual Exploitation, and are able to tailor programmes of learning and support to suit individual needs and concerns.

By the end of Year 11 students have a college place, or other appropriate next destination; they have qualifications up to Level 1 in a range of academic and vocational subjects, and the social and emotional skills to cope with whatever comes next. Our S.E.N provision is bespoke, and our working practices are encapsulated in our ‘The Management of Challenging Behaviour’ training programme.
