The KRS Story and why we do what we do

KRS why we know how to support schools, students and parents, read our story.

Once upon a time, in a world where education seemed a one-size-fits-all garment, ill-fitting for many, there lived a soul with a vision. This soul had journeyed through the realms of education for decades, witnessing the struggles of young minds caught in the web of mainstream schooling. These were the young ones who, burdened with anxiety and worry, found the traditional paths of learning akin to traversing a labyrinth without a guide. They were the ones who, feeling alienated and misunderstood, would rather chase shadows than dreams, their potential dimming with each passing day. The impact was a heavy cloak upon their shoulders, with school staff stretched thin, and parents receiving the dreaded calls that echoed their deepest fears. It was clear: all young people need a haven to learn, a place where they belong, yet such sanctuaries were scarce.

Moved by a desire to mend this gap, the visionary set forth to create an alternative realm of education. This realm was designed for those young souls with EHCPs, those in dire need of time and space to learn not just academic lessons, but the art of coping, the science of thriving. It was to be a sanctuary where mental wellbeing was nurtured, where therapy was not just an option but a cornerstone, and where every young person had someone to confide in. Students sat learning at KRS

The blueprint of this realm was crafted with care, envisioning a day balanced with learning, wellbeing interventions, and the joy of simply being young. The foundation was laid with the recruitment of two remarkable teachers, whose hearts beat with the rhythm of understanding and compassion. The staff was a tapestry of talents, from art therapists weaving colours of calm, to sports enthusiasts crafting games of growth, each thread vital to the fabric of this nurturing environment. The premises, a castle of dreams made real, stood ready to welcome the young adventurers.

A typical day in this realm began with a gathering around the hearth of community, where breakfast and warm drinks sparked the flame of hope and camaraderie. The morning was dedicated to the quest of knowledge, with the magical ’17-minute rule’ guiding the way. This rule, a spell of focus, transformed learning into a series of sprints, each followed by a pause, a breath, allowing minds to refresh and spirits to soar. Subjects danced together, intertwining English with the threads of PSHE, Maths with the mysteries of the universe, each lesson a step on the journey of discovery.

As the sun climbed higher, the young explorers earned their passage to the realms of physical joy and creative expression. Dodgeball battles, the art of the nerf war, the grace of football, and the digital worlds of Xbox unfolded, each a lesson in teamwork, resilience, and joy. A champion boxer, a mentor of strength and discipline, joined, lending his wisdom to the tapestry. Interventions through art, digital games, and group discussions offered solace and growth, painting the day with broad strokes of belonging and understanding.

The day’s journey wound down with laughter and camaraderie, the gym and games consoles arenas of triumph and tales. Meals, whether brought from home or conjured under watchful eyes, were feasts of fellowship, each bite a reminder of the community forged within these walls.

As twilight beckoned and the young adventurers departed, the guardians of this realm, the staff, wove together the day’s tales, ensuring that by week’s end, the wider world of schools and parents were woven into the narrative. This was done not just for compliance, but for connection, for showcasing progress and the promise of return to the wider world, armed with new strengths and insights.

This realm was not just a place but a journey, a vision brought to life. Attendance, once a chasm, now a bridge being built with every day, every lesson, every smile. Young souls, once adrift, now charting courses of confidence and achievement, their attendance a testament to transformation. This was a realm of second chances, of paths diverged and then converged, a testament to the belief that every young person deserves not just to learn, but to thrive. Cooking and Learning

And so, the story of this alternative realm of education is one of hope, a beacon for those navigating the stormy seas of mainstream education. It stands as a testament to the power of vision, compassion, and the unwavering belief in the potential of every young soul to find their place in the world.
