Opt-In works in partnership with education services to provide support to vulnerable pupils in the six learning communities in the Southwest of Glasgow.
We work with pupils from Primary 6 to S1 helping them to deal with a variety of issues, including difficulties with behaviour, attendance, social skills, peer relationships, coping with loss and confidence issues.
The project is particularly focused on supporting pupils through the difficult transition from primary to secondary schools and delivers support in schools during term time and offers a series of transition support programmes during the summer holidays.
The project also provides individual support to pupils in secondary schools and works alongside families to address their child’s difficulties.
Referrals are normally made by pastoral care, teaching staff, school Joint support teams and educational psychology staff.
Opt-In gratefully acknowledges the support of our funders and Glasgow City Council’s Community Planning services. Other significant funding partners include Radio Clyde’s Cash for Kids, NHS Southwest, The William Mann Foundation, the Skipton Building Society and the Bellahouston Trust.
