All pupils who attend the school have an Individual Support Plan in addition to an Individual Educational Plan. This identifies the additional support need arising from difficulties in learning or barriers to the learning. It offers bespoke and intensive support strategies, both academic and pastoral. The plans are reviewed and monitored regularly to ensure all targets are SMART and all support is accurate. Students attend school Monday to Friday 09:00 - 15:15 during term time.


A referral is required from the Local Authority to start the assessment process.
Costs are based on assessed needs and personalised. A 3 day assessment takes place during which the assessed needs are identified; the local authority will make the final decision to place students in the school.
