Welcome to Salmons Brook School.
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the staff and governors of Salmons Brook School to welcome you to our school website. At Salmons Brook, our core purpose is to improve the quality of life for our students and the wider community by nurturing potential. The school opened as part of the Edact Trust in September 2022 and we are a special school, which caters for young people aged 11-18 with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.
At Salmons Brook, we deliver an innovative, ambitious and highly specialised curriculum, which includes exposure to enrichment activities that develop personal growth. Our curriculum is broad, balanced, relevant to needs and is designed to have integrated therapeutic support as necessary and a focus on developing resilience and preparing young people for the next stage in their lives.
We have created a therapeutic, student-centered learning experience, which focuses on the specific needs of students, developing their self-esteem and helping them to build secure and lasting relationships. Our specialised teaching staff are supported by a wider team of SEMH professionals who support the learning of our students and monitor their emotional wellbeing carefully. We deliver a range of academic and social/emotional interventions to support our young people and prepare them effectively for life after school.
A key part of our ethos is to foster community cohesion and we are proud to be a part of the local community in which we serve. The school seeks to challenge inequality and ensure that all young people are afforded an education and provided with the opportunities they deserve. We believe in embracing diversity in all forms and work tirelessly to support our students in understanding their role in the school and wider community.
We look forward to working alongside you to ensure the very best outcomes for our students here at Salmons Brook and welcome your feedback.
