Mike Rose has been very supportive for 1:1 pupil interventions – student, school and parents were pleased.on SEMH and Behaviour - KS3 Mentor
The work you have done with her has been amazing. She has seemed so much more settled and able to cope with the difficulties of school. She is more willing to talk to adults to share her feelings and is reaching her academic potential too. She is in the classroom much more – I rarely have to fetch her from the toilet anymore! Can you work with all my pupils? (School SENCo) on NESSie
I am truly grateful for the support you and NESSie are showing our small family. The way in which the case was processed and the speed with which the sessions were set up was simply impressive. You have quickly gained our child’s trust which is so important for him and I am so pleased with the progress you have made with him. I cannot thank you enough (parent)on NESSie
