Spectrum (Social Inclusion)

Spectrum is a wonderful vibrant area of Sedgehill which forms an important part of our whole school community

‘Spectrum’ symbolises the fact that at Sedgehill we offer an enormous range of Social Inclusion initiatives, working with students who need that little bit more support, academically or socially and challenging those high flying, fast track students who are set to change the world! We have an enormous number of projects on offer, some of which are supported by and work in conjunction with outside agencies. These support the Every Child Matters Agenda and SEAL objectives and include:

• One to one mentoring

• Counselling

• Small group work including nurture groups, transition groups, anger management groups

• Allotment project

• Cooking

• Knitting

• Nail care and nail art

• Drama therapy

• Dance therapy

• Lunchtime club

• Drama and film groups

• After school cineclub

• Craft groups

• Restorative Justice

We regularly invite parents/carers to meet with us and to join in with Spectrum sessions. We are keen to build more links with the local community.

At Key Stage 4, Spectrum works in conjunction with the Vocational department to offer a varied and interesting curriculum to support the individual needs of our students.
