An ASD, SEN and Mental Health Recovery School for those with high anixety 

 

We were founded by our proprietor Beverley-Sarah White  who wanted to set up a genuine 'Nordic' inspired progressive education environment where the holistic mental health support was totally integrated into learning and daily life. Where the development of the whole child was a priority and where they had much greater say in both their therapeutic and educational journey. She wanted a place where parents felt part of the process - a family, rather than a school. Originally the school had a heavy focus specifically on higher functioning ASD (such as Aspergers) but over time has grown to work with a larger range of individuals with anxiety needs and a large range of SEN needs associated with that anxiety such as dyslexia and ADHD. The core journey is always about ....

 

1) Helping the young person to get well by providing a small nurturing, caring and alternative environment that feels more like home 

 

2) Helping the young person and family to build resilience and 'Sisu' through teaching techniques to reduce anxiety 

 

3) Intensive educational support but in a progressive manner, allowing for students to fall in love with their learning again and the exercise a higher degree of control over their learning journey 

 

4) Transition to state SEN settings or mainstream schools once able to do so. For many students this will be at college age, however we do have students who show they are ready for this earlier and want/need a larger setting due to an improvement in their anxiety and a desire to widen friendships. Some also catch up to a point where they need a setting with a wider range of subjects and facilities at GCSE (our students only take 4-5 subjects as required for their next step) - tranisitions then occur in year 8,9 and 10. 

 

5) Providing on-going services and support for those that wanted to keep in contact or look us up at a later date - at no extra cost to the LEA (A family doesn't look the other way in your time of need, even if you've been away for a while!)

 

We were originally a 'tuition and therapy' facility and have been open for 8 years. We gained school status in December 2018, but did not start operating fully as a school until the April 2019. We had our first full Ofsted in November 2019 - having only been operating for 8 months and are very proud of our Good and Outstanding judgements across the categories, with an overall Good judgement.

Safeguarding Statement:  We are a setting for extremely vulnerable young people and as such we are very aware that we will attract those who may have undesirable intentions towards children. We are committed to ensuring that children, young people and vulnerable adults are safeguarded when in our care. As such we are unable to accept CVs. If you like what you see and are interested in working with us you will need to visit ETeach or Indeed. where we advertise all our current vacancies. We follow a rigorous selection and interview process, and all applications are via an ETeach application form which we carefully consider. All posts with us are subject to continued checks, including references, disbarred from teaching, disbarred from working with young people, section 128 and DBS, and we continue to monitor the behaviours and working practices of all adults, including freelance practitioners and volunteers closely, to ensure all students are safe, happy and learning well.  In addition adults are expected to make a declaration each term that they are fit to work with children and further checks are made on their current status. Prospective teachers and helpers can join our ETeach portal to be notified of vacances as they arise. All adults, including visiting professionals, are expected to have high standards of professional conduct and put the safety of young people first at all times. At this setting we have a live and real belief that 'It could happen anywhere' and staff have lots of supervision opportunities in which to raise any concerns they may have regarding fellow staff members in confidence.
