Reshaping the future

North Star Outreach

North Star Outreach (Formally known as Stable Block Project)

North Star Outreach operates from Woodstock School site. 

Our remit is to provide effective early intervention and work with colleagues in mainstream primary schools to support and manage children identified as having Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs.

Effective intervention is defined as the early identification of concerns, early assessment and early support. Working together we aim to advise and support schools to plan and implement provision so that children with SEMH improve their overall outcomes, attendance and engagement.

Working collaboratively with schools allows us to individually tailor the provision required with the aim of enabling all children to achieve their full potential and develop the resilience and behaviours needed to succeed within a mainstream setting.

Testimonials of North Star Outreach’s work

The ‘Stable Block’ has helped my child to learn again. (Parent)

The Stable Block has helped us support vulnerable [pupils] effectively in the absence of other services that have now vanished. (SENCo)

Their expertise is invaluable and we really appreciate their support and advice. (SENCo)

We, as a school, had tried every strategy and technique and had nowhere else to go. So much so, that one child was at risk of being permanently excluded. The Stable Block has really answered our prayers and has been inspirational, supportive, understanding and proactive. (SENCo)

It is essential that a service such as this continues. The level of support and advice has been invaluable in furthering our understanding. (SENCo)

Enabled us to improve our inclusion of pupils with SEMH and get parents on board as well. [I would] recommend this service without reservation. (SENCo)
