All our children have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. Some children are reintegrated back to mainstream. Young people come to us with unmet Special Educational Needs and in some cases a full assessment of need is carried out resulting in an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

We feel we are the most important school in Sheffield with some of the most vulnerable and at the same time vibrant children in the city. Many of our children have unsettled home lives and mental health difficulties. Therefore, it is important to role model behaviour and always show children unconditional positive regard.

Everything we do is based on relationships and building trust.

Our children have not had the best start to their young lives in education so we need to help them become ready to learn and then to accelerate their learning so we provide a brighter future with improved life chances.
