“What appealed to me and senior leaders was that this programme offers a range of resources and interventions that we wouldn’t normally have access to,” Tara Baig, Head of Miles Coverdale Primary

 

What is West London Zone?

West London Zone is a targeted early intervention programme that provides additional opportunities and support to children according to their individual needs.

Our Link Workers are employed by WLZ and based in the school. They work with a cohort of children for a period of at least two years. Children are selected by the school, informed by WLZ’s data analysis of school data on attainment levels and attendance. Our aim is that the children end the programme ‘on-track’ to meet their and the school's expectations in wellbeing and academic attainment.

Link Workers coordinate an individual support plan for each child, informed by the school and parents. We commission over 35 charities working in our Zone to carry out specialist support sessions to jointly deliver every child's plan. We believe that pooling the wide variety of resources available in the area is the best way of making sure all the children we work with have the tools they need to thrive.

For more information about the support organisations we work with, see our Delivery Partners page.

 

"The most important thing is a child having someone who can listen to them without judgement, to guide and support them through whatever they’re going through,” Farial Missi, Link Worker Manager

 

Why work with West London Zone?

West London Zone's school-based model was created to provide support for children and young people who would benefit from additional opportunities and support. It is able to relieve budget pressures by combining a contribution from the school with money from three other commissioners. This provides good value for money for the school.
