About the Cabot Learning Federation
The Cabot Learning Federation is a diverse Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in the South West. We currently sponsor eight secondary academies and eight primary academies, an all through provision, Digitech Studio School and a discrete Post 16 provision and an alternative provision which consists of one primary and two secondary phases.
Snowdon Village is the collective name for the Alternative and Special provision within the CLF. This a new and exciting opportunity as from September 2019 The Nest, Engage and Bristol Futures Academy will all join to form Snowdon Village.
Snowdon Village is an all-through multi-site hybrid of a special school and an alternative provision. Its primary aim is to meet the needs of children and young adults who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues by offering a suite of alternatives to mainstream school. Members of Snowdon Village may engage with the provision in a variety of ways, from long term residential care to short-term, part-time alternatives which complement their existing school experience.
In some cases, children might remain on roll at their usual school which commissions a support place for them at a local centre. This centre will focus on re-engagement with school, Aggression Replacement Therapy, group and community projects, opportunities for coaching and reflection, and Nurture provision for the youngest children. They may enjoy some days in their usual school and some days in Snowdon Village, within The Nest or Engage elements of the provision. Other students may take up a full time permanent place within Bristol Futures Academy, following a vocational pathway.
