Welcome to the Safe Start Family

Safe Start is a Manchester based centre for young students who require alternative provision. We tailor packages to each individual referred to us using alternative strategies to make education engaging for students while promoting personal development.

Our pupils include young people at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream schools or other providers. We work with students to identify their priority of needs and provide a bespoke curriculum to best meet these needs, and where possible builds on their achievements from mainstream education.


Who We are

We Are Safe Start

Many of our referred students arrive in their GCSE years and it is our aim to help young people meet their full potential and enable them to take exams or achieve national accreditation..

We embed the government’s national core curriculum into the provision alongside a personalised programme and trauma informed approach to build and reinforce resilience.
