The Haven is a Foundation/KS1 Focus Provision that provides specialist support for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. The aim is that these children can return to their mainstream schools with support. Our inclusive philosophy aims to support parents, carers and pupils, so that their journey through our school is as smooth, successful and anxiety free as possible. All pupils attending The Haven have an Education, Health and Care Plan which describes the specific needs of the child and indicates what is required to support their education. The Haven will be run using Nurture Group principles. This is based on psychological research which has shown that secure, nurturing relationships and consistency are vital in enhancing children's social, emotional, cognitive and mental health development.
