Lotus School is being purpose built to accommodate students who have an Education, Health and Care plan for Social, Emotional and Mental Health as their primary need. It has been carefully designed to ensure that students who have struggled accessing mainstream education are fully supported to succeed.
Our school will cater to 48 students, ranging from Year 6 to Year 11. Our students will have access to a bespoke curriculum that will deliver all of the core subjects, meaningful qualifications and therapeutic interventions that will help to develop and re-engage them.
We will also provide students with opportunities to study off site and take part in outdoor educational activities, work experience and community based work.
We understand that for some children, their journey so far has been difficult, but this can change, and with patience and the right support, every student can thrive and learn.
We know that relationships are vital in helping to build a student’s self-esteem and willingness to learn, and that just one ‘champion’ can make a real difference. Our approach is student centred and they are at the forefront of everything we do, from the design of the building, to the staff and curriculum.
We will build strong and lasting relationships with the families and key adults of the students who join Lotus, as we know how important this is in securing a successful future for the young person. We believe in looking to the future and showing students that nothing in their past is too great to overcome.
“Every child, no matter what their starting point or background, has the right to an education that prepares them for adult life. Lotus School will provide safety, stability and success for every child.”
“We will be driven by a moral purpose to transform opportunities and change life chances of children and young people, who live in challenging times as well as challenging areas.”
