Information about the school

Information about the trust Inspire Academy is a SEMH (Special School for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs) and forms part of The Parallel Learning Multi Academy Trust.

All the students at Inspire have an EHCP (Education Health and Care Plan), primarily SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health), some exhibit very challenging behaviour and Mainstream schooling is not always the most appropriate setting. Sometimes their first encounter of school has been chaotic and certainly challenging, many have had a fragmented education and have fallen behind their peers academically. This often results in self-esteem issues and anti-social behaviour.

With small classes and amazing staff that truly understand SEMH we feel that once a student starts at Inspire they have every opportunity to turn their lives around. Every child has the right to achieve and we believe that every parent and carer has the right to expect that Inspire Academy will do its very best for their child. With this in mind we work closely with parents and carers and other agencies to help each student make positive choices and changes which will serve them better in their future. A key feature that we try to adopt is teaching the students to take responsibility for their behaviour and consequences. We teach them to try and put things right when they go wrong, together with learning the values of tolerance and respect for themselves and others.

We do not believe it is acceptable for any student to behave in an unsafe or inappropriate way without regard to others. Clear rules, boundaries, expectations and consequences. We show our students how to build positive relationships. By doing all of this during the time our students are with us, we develop their academic and personal skills and confidence that will enable them to face society.
