We aim to provide the best possible outcomes for all children, regardless of ability or start point, ensuring that all pupils are prepared for their next steps, whether that be in education, training or employment.
The school now operates over two specialised sites providing high class educational opportunities for all. The Westbourne ‘Gateway’ site caters for those pupils with a primary diagnosis of Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs, whilst the Westbourne ‘Bridge’ site caters for those pupils with a primary diagnosis of autism or present with characteristics of autism.
Our goal is to create bespoke curriculums that support the needs of each individual child, allowing them to flourish and succeed giving them the best possible opportunities in life.
As a school we understand that some of our students’ views of education may be negative and that the transition back into school life can create feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and fear. Through a holistic approach of high quality education, pastoral and therapeutic staff, including Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and Psychotherapy, we aim to remove these barriers and support each child back into school where they can be happy, safe and eager learners once again.
This can only be achieved by the forging of strong working relationships between staff and students. By really getting to know each individual child, we can target our support and ensure progress both academically and socially.
To achieve these goals, success will look different for each individual child and through the use of personalised targets, we will celebrate every small step of progress made, whatever that may be.
