“Surrey Virtual School commissioned White Hut Studios to provide a programme of full-time mentoring for a Yr 9 student for 12 weeks to support the success of a managed move between two local authorities.
The Yr 9 child had a hugely negative reputation within the borough in which he lived. This was due to his bullying, violent behaviours and substance misuse. Consequently, he had a string of failed managed moves and was at significant risk of permanent exclusion.
The White Hut professionals were importantly, child focused. Staff were accomplished professionals in their field: punctual, professional and above all, truly committed to the child, exhibiting the highest aspirations for him. They also attended and significantly contributed to professional meetings.
The White Hut achieved what others could not and that was a fundamental turn around in the child’s behaviour. So much so that the Head teacher of the receiving school based on the fact that she had in her extensive experience, not seen such a turnaround in a child, decided to confirm him into her school after just 6 weeks, half-way through the managed move. This success is solely attributable to The White Hut. I would highly recommend The White Hut and would not hesitate to use their services again”
