PLC Student comments

Year 11 Student

Gives me more time to learn. It's comfortable and quiet.

Year 9 Student

A great place for people to go when they have a problem. Quieter than normal classrooms, it is easier to concentrate and complete work. Amazing for people who prefer quiet environments.

Year 9 Student

The PLC is a great place for people who can't be in lessons. Very accommodating and helpful.

Year 8 Student

The PLC is a nice quiet place to sit and chill. They've fish. Miss Davies is lovely and understanding and she always knows everything, you can't trick her. I've really benefitted coming to the PLC and I think all schools should have one.

Year 7 Student

PLC has helped me a lot because I broke my leg and if I have to go upstairs, I go to the PLC and do my work there.

Year 7 Student

No worries, PLC. The no worries is very supportive with mindfulness. The PLC is like a safe haven for when me and many others when feeling anxious.

Year 7 Student

I use the PLC for a chance to talk to Mrs Davies and my friends when I am having a bad day.

Year 7 Student

In year 7 the PLC helped me when I was upset and can help other people. I used the PLC frequently and now I know how to help myself feel better and have learnt that I can talk to people about it.

Year 7 Student

I use the PLC because I worry. The no worries was really good because I have conquered my worries and hit them right in the face. I feel a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I like the PLC.

Year 7 Student

The PLC is a great place to be at break time and lunch. It is a really calm place to be and there is something called the friendship group and that is nice.

Year 10 Student

The PLC means a lot to me, because they help me and it is a good and calm place to do my private studying. They're kind and caring and always supportive, you can always talk to them as they are always listening. It is really good because the staff will...

Year 10 Student

The PLC means that I can go to school without panicking about a lesson. It gives me an option if I am feeling anxious about anything and it also gives me an opportunity to catch up on any work I've missed.

Personalised learning Centre (PLC)

The Pastoral team work hard to include all students in the everyday life of our school. We are passionate about enabling every student to access a full and varied curriculum that meets their needs. 

It is vital that any school maintains all children in full time education and this is not only an educational priority but a social one.

Excluded children become the most vulnerable in the community. It can act to exacerbate difficult circumstances in their family life, increasing levels of stress and disruption. It is suggested that excluded children are more likely to become involved in crime. With this in mind, our students can access the Personalised Learning Centre (PLC). The PLC Manager provides a structured and safe environment to enable learners to flourish.

The PLC seeks to:
  • Improve achievement
  • Improve behaviour and relationships
  • Work with teaching staff to identify the educational needs of the students
  • Work collaboratively with parents
  • Create a positive ethos and profile within the school
  • Provide high quality support
