AN OVERVIEW OF SYM
SYM is dedicated to providing a highly professional service which supports students and schools. We aim to help schools provide a broad, rich curriculum especially in the areas of social, physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Our staff (who are all enhanced DBS checked) are committed to planning, delivering and evaluating a range of activities which are ‘tailor made’ to suit the individual needs of each school and indeed each group of students. We work in close partnership with school staff to ensure that what we deliver meets the school’s requirements and has a positive, measurable impact on the students.
The work of SYM is overseen by a management board comprising experienced teachers, headteachers, local clergy and business people, whose role is to ensure that the services delivered meet the highest possible professional standards.
Our services are free to schools as we are financially supported by 25 churches and over 200 donors, both charities and individuals. We are a Christian organisation and we will always present from that point of view but we do respect the views of those of all faiths and those of none.
We are committed to safeguarding children, young people, victims/perpetrators of domestic abuse and vulnerable adults. The trustees of this charity have adopted the Schools Safe Practice laid down by Essex County Council which can be found on their website here
