Support For Parents

Welcome to TBAC we provide a safe and friendly environment favourable to our young people's learning and wellbeing.

As an organisation we fundamentally believe in developing active relationships with Parents/Carers based on participation and collaboration with the young person being at centre of what we do.

This approach is based on experience and has proved to be mutually beneficial offering a positive partnership between you, your child and ourselves.

As a provision we are committed to working with you every step of the way to offer hands on support and practical guidance should you request or seek our assistance.

If you have any issues or concerns, please contact us, we will try and support you in any way we can. We hope your child’s time here with us will be enjoyable and successful. We provide each student with a bespoke timetable based on their individual needs and abilities.

Special Education Needs (SEN)
We also work with children with Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) with varying difficulties e.g. ASD, ADHD, Asperger's, Dyslexia etc

Every student is assigned a mentor and sessions are offered on a one-to-one or small group basis.

Parent/Carer Support

We are committed to raise the academic and social aspirations and achievements of children and young people who attend the centre by engaging parents in the education process and helping them to work in partnership as part of the learning process.

We will help parents/carers to understand the education system and how it work; prepare for school meetings and hold regular parents/carers meetings on a one to one or group basis. Parents/Carers can also benefits from an in-house mentoring services should you request our support.

Breakfast Club

TBAC offers a free breakfast club to all its Students, providing hot and cold drinks and a choice of cereals or toast before the day’s learning starts.

Your child will need to arrive at the centre at 8.30am to benefit from this, unless your child starts at 9.30 in which case, they will need to arrive at 9.00am.

At lunch times we offer a balanced and nutritious menu that your child can choose from.

What Parents/Carers are saying about us?

"As a manger of a children’s residential home and an acting a corporal parent for the young people in my care, it is imperative that my children attend an education provision that not only educates them academically but instils life skills that will support them later on in life when they leave the home. TBAC is not only a professional provision but upon entering the premises you are warmly greeted by staff in a professional manner. TBACs ethos is to ensure any young person who attends feels safe and secure in an environment that they can achieve in. TBACs head teacher upholds a high standard which is expected from both staff and pupils. The work and support my child has received since attending TBAC has been excellent, they not only keep me updated with his progress they have put measures in place that have not only seen his behaviour improve within education but in his home life. I would strongly recommend anyone sending their child to TBAC if you need an education where staff go above and beyond for your child to succeed."


"If ever there are any issues, I find that all staff at TBAC are always willing to listen and help to put things right, they make you feel better and always willing to listen to the worries of you as a parent and also your child which is fantastic support to have. My child has always stated that he feels very safe and protected at TBAC, he understands that TBAC always put the student’s safety first. I have always found that all the staff are extremely approachable regardless of the situation. I can confirm that my son has Improved since attending TBAC and now gets much more out of the lessons especially as there is 1-to-1 learning, I am finding that since starting at TBAC he has much more attention, needs are more than met."
