Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare Information

Our Learning Support Unit (LSU) is located within the Academy near to the main school reception.

The LSU is in this school to help our students make the most of their time at Alcester Academy. We provide high quality services that support them, enhance their learning and experiences and are responsive to their changing needs.

Our core aim is to work with the students and all staff members, to develop excellent student support and student support services. By doing this, we help our students make good choices so they are ready to learn and we can promote progression throughout each academic year, until they participate in further and higher education.
