Opportunity to join LPW’s school advisory group
We are looking for people to join our school advisory group to lead and shape alternative education for young people in Bristol and the surrounding areas. This is a voluntary role and you will be expected to attend school governor/board meetings as and when needed.
We are a small key stage 4 alternative learning provider based in the heart of Bristol, serving communities across the city and the surrounding local authority areas. The majority of our students join us from mainstream settings where they were at risk of permanent exclusion. Our aim is to re-engage them with education and to support them to achieve positive outcomes and transition successfully into post 16 placements.
Every student is inspired to learn and empowered to grow as an individual.
Our Mission Statement
To re-engage young people with education in a safe, supportive and ambitious learning environment that inspires positive outcomes and personal growth. To develop responsibility, respect for self and others and a sense of community, that recognises and celebrates diversity.
We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming, stable and friendly environment that supports students to re-engage with education and build strong relationships with a supportive team of trusted staff.
We recognise the traditional school curriculum does not suit many of our learners and that this may have contributed to their difficulties in previous settings. We aim to combine academic success with valuable real-life experiences and vocational learning, and partner with providers across the city to offer a wide range of courses and opportunities.
Our school is trauma and attachment aware and this approach informs how we work with the young people that attend our setting. We recognise the importance of developing trusted relationships between students and staff and providing stability that supports success.
Our school sits within the wider LPW community interest company, which enables us to provide additional support to our young people in the school through a team of skilled engagement workers.
