Specialist Education Support Network

Every child deserves an education



SESN's vision is to continually provide effective academic and SEMH intervention through our three point delivery model.

This includes our Independent School which focuses on nurturing and relational principles bringing about more positive engagement and sustainable changes in a young person’s educational journey. Our Outreach Services offering effective strategies and intervention to schools and families to further understand and support young people with SEMH. As well as our face to face and online training courses further developing the knowledge and skills sets of those working with children and young people. 


Additional to this vision include:

  • Providing a responsive, consistent supportive framework enabling the accommodation of social, emotional, mental health and behavioural difficulties.
  • Providing a different perspective on alternative education.
  • To remove a compliance culture
  • Changing the mindset of our young people but also improve the views and stigmas that others and local communities have on young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Our Principles

Every individual should be continually encouraged to develop and succeed by uncovering their abilities and talents

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
