  • a physical environment and teaching approaches that have been created in response to sensitivity to the particular needs of children with SEMH difficulties
  • a wide range of opportunities to access external agencies such as occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech and language therapy to support individual needs
  • an inclusive environment in which pupils feel safe, confident, are happy and make good progress academically, socially and in the development of their independence skills
  • strong partnerships with the families of pupils and collaboration with a range of other agencies, creating a caring and friendly learning environment in which pupils make good progress
