Little Acorns


School Description

Little Acorns School provides a therapeutic education for children with a range of Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs, as well other associated difficulties and challenging behaviours. Each child receives an individual learning plan and separate therapeutic support plan inline with the outcomes of their EHCP's.

We currently have 20 pupils on roll currently- expanding to 34 by the new academic year. We have some residing at the care home on site whilst others travel in as day pupils.

Little Acorns welcomes children with a range of needs including ASD and ADHD. We also work closely with the care home supporting LAC who have had troubled upbringings and suffered trauma in their early years.

The core purpose of Little Acorns School is to equip every pupil with the skills and knowledge they need to lead healthy and productive lives. We believe all children have the right to an education. We look beyond the complex, and sometimes challenging circumstances of each pupil to find the potential within.

The majority of our pupils have experienced turbulence in their schooling and many have severe, complex, or profound needs that have a significant impact on their cognitive development, their social, emotional development and their communication skills. We aim to support pupils in a safe school environment, and work closely with parents, carers and other professionals to ensure the best outcomes, to maximise life chances and ensure they can be as independent as possible.

Our curriculum is ambitious for all our pupils. Our school aims to ensure pupils journeys through school are positive ones.

We offer therapeutic input alongside our academics, to help our students remove barriers to learning and become successful in and out of school.
