A therapeutic intervention programme designed to help children be successful in their mainstream school.

What does Tier 4 provision look like?

  • A short term intervention, for a maximum of 16 weeks, designed to enable children to develop some of the key skills they need to succeed in a mainstream setting.
  • The Willow Centre provides a therapeutic learning environment and a curriculum which is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child.
