  • provide the highest quality education in the setting most appropriate for their needs, either at Thorneywood School, at home or in the community.
  • liaise with parents/carers, medical and other services and agencies supporting them to gain a holistic view of their needs and to provide support to overcome barriers to learning posed by these.
  • provide a nurturing environment which encourages resilience, where they can regain confidence and a sense of enjoyment through learning.
  • support continuity of learning by liaising with their own school and creating personalised programmes of study.
  • offer a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences on and offsite, to give them increased opportunities to succeed and build their self – esteem.
  • carefully monitor and review their time with us and make changes to their provision according to their needs.
