1st Staff are a SEN consultancy which provides specialist staff to work with Reception to Key Stage 5 students who are at risk of exclusion, have already been temporarily or permanently excluded, school refusers, young offenders, those with emotional or behavioural difficulties, SEN, SEMH, serious health issues and those who are disengaged from education. As an approved provider for London Boroughs and County Councils we are experienced in working with local authorities and schools.

1st Staff have an affiliation with an Ofsted registered Independent SEMH School in East London. Tutors are able to access their curriculum, draw on resources and have the support of their senior leadership team, unlike any other tuition provider. We are also able to document levelling data and attend school and professional’s meetings when required.

We work with all ages from EYFS through to 18 and beyond, with or without an ECH plan. Our purpose is to return students to specialist or mainstream education, as soon as is practical. We deliver person-centred, bespoke, high-quality education, ensuring that students have outstanding opportunities to re-integrate. We provide the encouragement and tools for students to develop and apply the knowledge, skills and understanding, that will enable them to become successful at learning, confident as individuals and to live productive and responsible lives.

We also work within schools providing bespoke educational packages with the goal of stopping exclusions from happening.

The students that we work with are either provided with up to 3 hours per day 5 days a week on outreach basis or where possible in a school environment. This can be at the child’s home, a local library or safe environment or if possible in school. We provide weekly lesson reports and also can complete levelling data for every student we provide tuition for should it be required. We also work together with the necessary agencies to apply for EHC plans in situations where the school are unable to complete this.
