SWAN Base Provision


We are fortunate to be able to provide an alternative provision for children who struggle to manage their behaviour in class, and who are also struggling 


The SWAN Base will provide interventions to support your child’s individual needs i.e. Anger Management (using a programme called Zones of Regulations behaviour for learning and success, relaxation techniques and a range of creative interventions. Children will be assessed regular using the SDQ assessment and the R.A.G (Red, Amber, Green) Review assessment. The Provision Base Manager will have weekly contact with parents/carers to discuss their child’s progress.  Children will access the provision on a daily basis start times will be from 9am to 2.45pm. Children will enter and exit the SWAN Base via the Year 6 door on the 5/6 playground, a member of SWAN Base staff will greet parents/carers on arrival.

The SWAN Base will be run by

Mrs Renshaw (Provision Base Manager) Miss Carter (Specialist Teaching




Our provision is an attachment and trauma friendly approach which offers and encourages warmth, clear boundaries and high expectations so that all our children can reach their full potential by supporting them to re-integrate back into mainstream school following a 10/12 weeks’ intervention. We understand the complex needs of our children academically and physically contributing to each child’s ability to self-regulate and build resilience to manage their behaviour in a positive manner, embracing every opportunity to develop basic skills in reading, writing and maths when mainstream access is a challenge. We work collectively with our children, their parents/carers and other professionals to ensure individual needs are assessed and met. We work closely with class teachers and other staff so that children’s re-integration into a long term setting is effective and successful.
