Respect4us is an alternative education provider. Staffed by educational professionals it provides an alternative curriculum for secondary school children who have failed to make progress in the mainstream educational system. Taking referrals directly from schools it caters for three groups of young people;
Respect4us is not a school, nor is it a vocational education provider. Our approach is holistic and child-centred aimed at nurturing the young person's confidence and identifying with them their unique qualities and potential to be successful, happy and fulfilled human beings.

At the end of each day the staff meet as a team to review the day, debrief each other and to discuss what we have learned about the young people and their needs during the day. This reflection at the end of the day means we are continually improving our practice, learning from each other and fine tuning our programmes. What's more nobody goes home at the end of the day without having shared their disasters as well as successes. Despite being engaged in difficult and stressful work, we support each other in living stress-free lives.
