Academy Day

Every day is a fresh start – this is an integral sentiment to our approach to behaviour management – a new opportunity to learn something new.  All of our pupils have Education and Health Care Plans, and the specific intervention/s that are required by the plan occur throughout the day using our Interventions Team.
