We recognise the importance of providing learning opportunities that are stimulating, fun and challenging, embedded within an environment where all students feel safe, and can develop their confidence to take risks and make progress.
However, none of this is possible without a dedicated staff team to help students realise their potential. To meet the needs of our young people within our services, our teachers are experienced in the area of SEMH. Teachers are ably supported by our Teaching Assistants, as well as medical staff when required.
We offer a holistic care and treatment programme which compliments the school provision. More information about this can be found on the hospital pages. We value the contributions made by home schools, each LEA, parents and carers to facilitate the highest expectations and most positive outcomes for our young people.
Every young person is allocated a Key Teacher. This is a central component of our provision as this person will oversee the progress and outcomes achieved at every stage of a young person’s stay at the hospital. Through regular meetings and our unique timetable, we support each student to take responsibility for both their learning and behaviour by giving them opportunities to make informed choices that contribute towards their future.
Fundamental to our approach is a positive relationship, based on mutual respect, where students are encouraged to contribute to a positive dialogue with adults and to be part of the decision-making process regarding their education and aspirations. Ultimately, we wish every student to achieve their ambitions by gaining optimum independence and qualifications which will allow them to participate in their community and lead them to a full and happy life.
