Hello and welcome to our website. We hope that it reflects the opportunities provided for Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 students living in Westmorland & Furness.
Students access our support via a referral from their mainstream school or following a permanent exclusion from school. We are a specialist provision that works with a variety of agencies to support children and young people who require additional support with their social, emotional and health needs.
We promote positive mental health alongside academic achievement to all young people to re-engage and hopefully (where appropriate) reintegrate back into mainstream education as well as be a valuable part of society whilst supporting them they fulfil their potential during their time with us.
All staff hold one another to account to provide a positive, inclusive, safe and secure environment for our young people to feel confident to learn. We try to ensure our pupils feel valued, respected and supported by empathetic staff who consider the individual needs of each pupil. We aim for all to develop resilience and be accountable for their behaviours. We are very proud of our school and all our students achieve and we appreciate the support of our families and community.
We are proud of the work we do with parents/carers to ensure you are listened to and any concerns can be acted upon where possible so that the needs your children are effectively met. We also work with many partner organisations such as Health, Childrens Service, Police and SEND support services.
Whatever the context of the placement, a student’s progress is assessed and monitored at all stages of their placement to ensure that provision remains appropriate and is outcome focused.
