Our Vision

The SHINE Centre has been designed to educate fifteen secondary age young people, to promote innovative, quality first teaching, with a personalised curriculum offer to help reignite the interest of each pupil and inspire an enthusiasm for learning, whilst also creating a holistic support package to support every pupil in their learning.

All students have an educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) for social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH). The staff running the provision have substantial experience of successfully supporting children with SEMH needs, and includes teachers, a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA), Learning Support Assistants (LSAs), Family Support Workers (FSWs), Wellbeing practitioner and an Educational Psychologist.

The SHINE Centre is a detached, single story sanctuary and is a “state of the art” learning area and resource, housing:

  • 3 separate classrooms,
  • an area for a kitchen/cafe/cyber cafe,
  • a creative area,
  • an art area,
  • a meeting room for parents, 1:1 work and therapeutic work,
  • a nurture/breakout room,
  • a dedicated breakout/recreation area immediately outside the building,
  • secure, designated staff only areas for planning, preparation and administrative work.

Students receive a full curriculum provision where possible tailored to the students particular needs, up to GCSE level, in the 5 purpose built classrooms and time dedicated to Outdoor education.

The SHINE Centre is located within The Winstanley School, with a genuine mainstream collaboration, partnership and learning experiences for every young person, when it is deemed the correct stage for them to do so.
