Our School

Freedom to Flourish

We recognise that mainstream education is not for everyone and, through our carefully planned curriculum and excellent pastoral support, we offer students the chance to thrive, achieve and improve their life chances. Students at Active Wellbeing School have the ‘freedom to flourish’ as we place great emphasis on the importance of physical and mental wellbeing.

We treat every student at Active Wellbeing School with the same consideration, commitment, patience and kindness that we would want for our own children. We understand that a positive, well-rounded education goes far beyond the classroom and our dedicated team of staff are passionate about developing the character strengths of the students as well as aiming for academic success.

A Welcome From

Our Head Teacher

I am extremely proud to be the Head Teacher of Active Wellbeing School and I am delighted to lead it into the next stage of development. Our dedicated staff team work tirelessly to ensure that our students receive the best quality of education and care. We provide our students with an engaging, broad and balanced curriculum that meets their individual needs and ensure that students receive the support they require to help them reach their full potential.

All staff, volunteers and students are encouraged to conduct themselves in such a way that reflects our values and ethos. We promote resilience, respect, honesty, courage and empathy in our environment, and we aim to foster these values in everything we do. At Active Wellbeing School, we have high expectations of our students’ behaviour based on a very simple concept, that every child and adult use manners, takes responsibility for their actions, and knows the difference between right and wrong.

We are extremely proud of our setting within the community and feel fortunate to be able to deliver our curriculum in such a beautiful location, surrounded by nature. This attributes to the overall feeling of wellbeing that our students experience when they enter our school.

 

I would urge you to visit our school and experience a warm and lively Active Wellbeing welcome!

Admissions

We specialise in providing high quality education for children with a range of communication and/or learning difficulties with related anxieties and behaviours between the ages of 4 to 11 years. Initial enquiries and informal visits are always welcome. Referrals may also come to us directly from the child’s local authority. Applications are considered by our admissions panel and a non-prejudicial visit will then be arranged. Following this visit a place may be offered to students whose needs can be fully addressed by the school. Fees will then be agreed with local authorities.

There will be an assessment period followed by a Post-Admission Review meeting after 10 to 12 weeks. Referrals can be made throughout the academic year. If you wish to discuss making a referral please contact the Team Manager of SEN, Assessment and Monitoring for the Local Authority.
