Situated in Ruddington on the edge of Nottingham in the East Midlands, Easthorpe School provides specialist education for 7-16 year olds with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties (SEMH), communication and interaction, cognition, and learning needs.
With the target of opening in September 2022 (subject to approval), the school is situated within large private grounds to create a therapeutic environment that enables us to focus on the health and wellbeing of our pupils. We have space for range of outdoor activities including physical education and environmental studies. Inside the building we have a number of activity rooms to offer activities such as dance, drama and yoga to our pupils.
What makes the school different?
We have small bespoke groupings of 6-8 pupils plus a class teacher/tutor and at least one Progress Engagement Guide (PEG) per group. Pupils are placed in the group that ‘best fits’ their developmental stage and academic need.
Our small class group size, balanced with a high level of experienced support, creates a safe and nurturing environment for pupils to begin to close the gaps in their skills, knowledge and understanding.
The school has dedicated Speech and Language resources who work in close collaboration with education staff. We are attachment and trauma-informed, so are able to work sensitively to enable young people to feel safe, included within the school community and to attend regularly.
Part of the Polaris Community
Within the community, we have independent fostering and adoption agencies who have been passionately improving the lives of young people for over 30 years, as well as Leaving Care services, Education and bespoke children’s services contracts. Our nurturing community works collectively to support the very best outcomes for each and every child in our care. We’re ambitious for our children and young people, families and staff, and believe in their futures.
