Specialist Education Support Network

Every child deserves an education



Our ethos is ensuring children and young people with SEMH needs and difficulties have access to quality education and positive experiences in order to fulfil and exceed their potential. We work with every young person based on the individual needs and interests and direct them towards a more open mindset with self belief and an appetite to develop and progress.

We focus on nurturing, relational and restorative practices to ensure our young people continually feel a sense of belonging and acceptance in order for them to engage and strive for success. To fulfil the young person’s ability to face life’s challenges, explore uncertainties and achieve their potential we have to create those conditions within their education whilst recognising and supporting their social and emotional barriers.

Each young person will be provided with an education which does not narrow their capabilities, but explores and heightens them.

Exposure to new experiences, venture and skills are essential to develop a young person’s confidence and desire to learn

An educational environment should be inviting and a place in which young people want to be because it meets their needs and their interests

Innovative without the prescription of linear education
