“Everyone at Impact make you feel welcome, right from the start. The staff are friendly and very professional in how they treat the students. Our son was hesitant at first but now enjoys going, we’ve seen a real improvement in his engagement and reigniting his learning needs. He has formed good friends as well as improving his relationships with others. Thank you Impact!”

“My son started Impact not long after lockdown as we were really struggling at home. He is going through process of the EHCP application. He’s enjoyed Impact and always gives good feedback when he comes home. He’s made lots of friends and speaks highly of the staff. If I could let him finish his school life here, it would be a perfect solution. I’ve not had 1 concern or worry since he started. Will be sad when his time ends here. Would like to thank Holly and the others for being fab in every way. Highly recommended.”

“IMPACT has been a really positive provision for one of our students. Without an AP like this, he could have been at risk of exclusion but the specialist support and tailored provision has been just what was needed. The staff are positive and professional; developing great working relationships with our school, parents and student very quickly. Communication is great and we have worked together to support next steps for our student and to evidence the support he needs to be successful in the future. I trust the team at IMPACT and know that they will do their best for my student and would not hesitate to use and recommend this provision.”

“Holly and the team at Impact have a child centred approach, which has enabled them to support some of our most vulnerable and hard to reach children. Their individualised approach to working with our pupils has resulted in them feeling more confident, raising their self-esteem and this has increased their levels of attendance and engagement.”

“Impact have supported our pupils with referrals for Special Educational Needs assessments,and have worked closely with us in multi-agency meetings to ensure that the families also get the support they need. This holistic approach has positively impacted on our pupils daily lived experience, as well as their families.

I would highly recommend Impact as an Alternative provider as they are a fantastic resource for schools and offer a life line to vulnerable children and their families.”

Secondary High School Pastoral Leader

“We have chosen Impact to work with a number of our children and have been very pleased with the level of support and nurture they have received. The building itself is very welcoming and calm, exactly the type of environment the students need to help them to focus, build confidence and make progress.

Holly and her team go above and beyond expectations when engaging with students and families. They do all they can to help students to settle and feel welcome.”

“The curriculum and timetable offered vary according to the age of the students and are personalised to best fit their individual needs. Holly attends multi-agency meetings to give feedback and ensure her students have the correct support available to them, and keeps all stakeholders fully informed. For all of the reasons mentioned, we will continue to use Impact to support our very vulnerable students, safe in the knowledge they will receive an excellent level of support.”
