North Herts Education Support Centre (NHESC), works closely with our parents/carers. Together we make a difference to your son/daughters life and make NHESC a pleasant and successful place to be. Right from the student’s Admissions Meeting, the emphasis is on partnership and a community feeling. This is promoted by giving the students responsibility and emphasising ownership of one’s actions. This focus on responsibility for one’s actions is always emphasised and celebrated when a student has been successful. Their responsibility towards the running of the Centre is enmeshed in the daily routine and is overtly apparent in the Student Council.
NHESC aims to prepare our students for life when they leave school. We develop positive relationships with the students that are supportive and caring. This relationship brings students back to see us for years after they have left!
The students are treated as young adults and encouraged to help each other succeed. Once the trust between student and member of staff has developed, the student generally begins to grow in confidence and thus their learning improves.
