We hope to use our Recovery Fund in a range of College and community based activities that will encourage re-engagement and foster confidence and self-belief.  Areas we are currently looking at include Specialist tutor inputs, the Development of a Sensory & Friendship Garden, Individual Enrichment Activities, and Community visits alongside attendance at sporting or entertainment events and social evenings.

We hope that this plan will lead to a more motivated, enriched student group who are happy and ready to fully engage in College life again.
