IFPC are pleased to announce that our new contractor, Circles Alternative Education, have started works on the High St planters, village signs, beds outside the front of the church as well as a new project within the Bell Mead community garden area.

Circles Alternative Education was founded in 2009 as a not for profit community interest company to provide provision for 11-16’s at risk of exclusion from school. Over the past 13 years of progression, Circles has increased its service to provide vocational training and social emotional and mental health support for those aged 4-17 across 3 sites in Basildon & Stock in Essex and East Bergholt, Suffolk.

Circles strives to engage young people in learning through vocational team work and social development. By providing a happy, caring and safe learning environment for all, young people feel valued and are able to grow in confidence and independence. We promote happiness through a creative, exciting and practical curriculum, which generates a love of, and interest in, learning. Great value is placed on pupils’ self-esteem which is developed through a well-motivated attitude to learning, a healthy lifestyle, good social skills, self-discipline and a positive self-image.
