Our main goal in education is to help children and young people reach their full potential. At Polaris, we recognise the importance of specialist education and support for children who need a tailored approach to learning.
We support children and young people with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties (SEMH), communication and interaction, cognition, and learning needs, and our experienced education teams work hard to deliver highly innovative and personalised curriculums that are tailored to individual pupil's requirements.
We ensure that we offer safe and nurturing environments, where all children are valued as individuals so that they can achieve the very best for themselves and their future. Our empathetic staff teams work closely with pupils to build trusting relationships, review their needs regularly, and differentiate the curriculum accordingly, so that we can offer individualised support for their special educational needs.
All our pupils benefit from small, friendly classes of a maximum of 5-7 pupils per class, allowing us to really get to know our children, achieve positive outcomes and succeed in providing pathways that enable a smooth transition to higher education, training and apprenticeships.
Making a difference to children and helping them to grow is what's most important to us and so we provide an innovative curriculum that enables each of our learners to develop their personal, emotional, social, and academic skills and knowledge, which will shape their whole life.
What makes us unique?
We work with children and young people who have primarily Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH), and often complex and challenging needs with communication and interaction, cognition and learning.
Our education service includes special therapeutic schools, as well accredited silver award attachment and trauma sensitive schools. Our Head Teachers, Deputy Heads and Progress Engagement Guides have extensive experience in SEN, fostering and supporting children with challenging needs; working alongside our strong leadership teams of Qualified Teachers, qualified SENCos, our Speech and Language Therapists and Director of Education.
We provide attachment and trauma-informed learning, so are able to work holistically and sensitively to enable young people to feel safe, included within the school community and able to reach their full potential.
Our schools provide specialist education for children and young people with a variety of complex needs.
Our mission is to provide each pupil with a tailored, diverse and appropriate education in a safe, supportive environment that promotes engagement, inspires learning and encourages achievement.
