Case studies

Case study: Jason

Hi, my name is Jason* and I arrived at Coxlease School having been excluded from my mainstream primary school. I had a variety of issues which presented as highly challenging behaviour, including:

  • Low self-esteem to the point where I would refuse to leave the school site on activities due to my anxieties
  • Being unable to adhere to fundamental boundaries and codes of conduct. I would become very physically aggressive when my behaviours were challenged
  • Refusing lessons regularly. I was thoroughly disengaged with any form of education or authority
  • Poor attendance which, combined with my prior disaffection, affected my progress

When I joined Coxlease School, my overall attainment was significantly below that expected for my age and I was predicted to achieve a Level 2 of the National Curriculum for literacy, numeracy and science at the end of Key Stage 2.

During my time at Coxlease, I developed into a confident and mature young person. My parents, teachers and key worker all said the change in me was dramatic. By Key Stage 4 I had made friends, I was engaged in lessons, made progress in my learning and most importantly, I enjoyed school.

I left Coxlease School at the end of Year 11 with:

  • Six GCSEs at A* to C grade, including English, maths, PE, science and catering
  • A Level 2 qualification in English and Cope
  • 100% attendance

I now attend college in my home town and am studying towards a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Public Services and I travel independently to college each day by public transport.
