Alderman Knight is a Local Authority educational provision for children and young people whose needs cannot be met in mainstream settings.
The school provides these young people with an enriched and extended curriculum, tailored to individual needs and supports them to achieve their potential within a supportive environment where they feel safe and happy to learn. This will help them develop positive feelings of self-worth and confidence and will enable them to make a successful transition to adulthood and be active and responsible citizens.
In addition to providing education, the school ensures a holistic approach that will develop resilience and help address additional needs that might impact on their ability to learn. This may include complex needs including learning, communication and interaction including social, emotional and mental health needs. The school is commissioned to provide a range of support strategies and approaches as needed by individual pupils in order to help pupils start to address any issues which affect their learning.
