Service offered to young mothers
We offer young women the opportunity to continue with their education both before and after their babies are born.
The pupils attend mainstream classes and follow a slightly reduced timetable of subjects. This enables them to access an enhanced curriculum specific to being a parent and gives them valuable study periods.
Within Jessie Porter Nursery we have a very well equipped baby room. This is run by two experienced Early Years Practitioners. Mums are timetabled to spend one period per week in the nursery with their babies and also have part of their lunchtimes there.
As well as mainstream subjects, girls are also offered extra-curricular opportunities via a variety of partner agencies to enhance their learning and understanding of parenthood.
