Headteacher's welcome

Matt Stiles, headteacher

Coventry ELC is a Pupil Referral Unit for Key Stage 3 & 4 pupils who have struggled to access mainstream school education due to Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) issues.

The core purpose of the ELC is ‘Enhancing Futures’ - maximising the potential of all our students. We seek to identify and meet our students’ needs to enable us to reintegrate them into mainstream school or into special educational settings or to support them to successfully complete Year 11 with us.

Our students commonly arrive with negative views of education, of their own prospects and all too often of themselves. Our dedicated staff work tirelessly to re-engage young people, building trust and motivation to enable them to stretch themselves and achieve their potential.

I take huge pride and pleasure in helping young people to believe in themselves and others, moving on to a brighter future.

 Matthew Stiles, Head of Alternative Provision.
