A specialist SEN school for secondary aged boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs

Our students have complex needs, which require significant understanding, time, strategy and patience to begin to address them. Their needs can manifest themselves with extreme displays of negative behaviour resulting in violence, verbal abuse, damage and defiance.

We empower students to take responsibility for these actions and equip them with coping methods/strategies when faced with challenge. The ‘real-world’ does not accept extreme negative behaviour, a reality that we must prepare our students for.

We have high and realistic expectations for our students. To achieve this we require a high level of support from all the adults associated with the individual.

Our behaviour policy provides us with the capacity to address behavioural needs, while supporting their special needs. Our recently developed Values allow all stakeholders to be clear on our expectations and these are reinforced positively whilst students are in school. Further details can be found in the “Behaviour and Attitudes” section.

Our home-school agreement, service level agreements and our home-school communications aim to establish a framework of support for a consistent approach to a student’s development.
