Meet Our Team

The core team of staff at the Arran Hill Centre is comprised of two qualified SENCOs, three teachers, a Learning Mentor and two Teaching Assistants.

All of the staff at the Arran Hill Centre are trained in Attachment, Trauma Enformed Practice, and Emotion Coaching. The Head of Centre and the Lead Teacher are qualified as Designated Safeguarding Leads and will communicate any safeguarding concerns to parents, carers and to the homeschools of each student on the same day.
