    The CCfL requires dynamic and innovative professionals with a proven track record of excellence who can support student progression in

    learning, behaviour and self-esteem. The CCfL is a new integrated school for secondary aged students with Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) difficulties across Camden. It is comprised of the three specialist services in Camden that provide support for secondary aged students with social, emotional and mental health issues (SEMH): KS3 & 4 Special School, the KS3 Pupil Referral Unit and the KS4 Pupil Referral Unit. It caters for 100 young people who require specialist SEMH provision, including those identified as requiring such provision through a statement of SEN, those who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school, or are at significant risk of being permanently excluded, and those needing a managed short term intervention to prevent permanent exclusion. The CCfL has an on-site multi-agency team to meet the holistic needs of students and their families. The provisions are located predominantly on two sites: one focusing on Key Stage 3 and one on Key Stage 4. There is an ongoing building programme to remodel and improve the existing buildings so they are fit for purpose and enable the CCFL to meet the continuum of need from small group provision to more personalised learning packages for students who cannot engage in group learning activities. It is envisaged the building programme will be completed by Summer 2015.

    The CCfL provision was recently inspected Summer 2004, Ofsted judged the provision to be good and stated that ‘‘innovative leadership has created a clear and effective vision for the future, for the school to be ‘at the cutting edge’ of providing alternative education.”
