We are passionate that every young person is entitled to an outstanding educational environment which provides appropriate and specific support, enabling them to explore, discover and thrive, in every sense.
Our approach is child centred and needs-led, prioritised by building strong relationships between students and staff, and effective home-school links, created and maintained by effective communication and mutual trust.
Our calm yet vibrant, multisensory environment ensures that students gain the specific approach which they require and critically that they have the opportunity to find, demonstrate, utilise and celebrate their strengths, their 'brilliance'.
Abbot’s Way students quickly learn to feel 'safe' and at ease among peers who are similar. They are no longer the odd one out and finally feel accepted - they fit in and belong.
When a child feels secure, they can be encouraged to take steps into the unknown and explore, with a reduced fear of failure and an increased self-confidence. The first stages of facilitating learning...
Our students can dare to take risks, to begin to question, to begin to enquire and to begin to challenge themselves.
Our students can dare to learn.
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” - Marcel Proust
When a child begins to actively re-engage in learning and experience success then learning can accelerate and cement.
Abbot’s Way students discover their brilliance and exceptional potential, by seeing, by hearing and most importantly by doing. Learning is experiential and inspiring.
Self-esteem and self-belief rises and students make progress, most importantly recognising and feeling pride in their progress too.
Successful learning feeds a thirst for further learning and progress feeds a thirst for further progress.
Individual challenges which can impact on child development as a whole, are supported with specific strategies and resources so that students not only cope or survive, they thrive.
Students want to learn, and at Abbot's Way our students realise they can learn.
Progress becomes something which students desire, recognise and know how to achieve.
Students both recognise and learn how to follow their pastoral and academic learning pathway, and reach their potential.
For young people to accept, celebrate and promote their potential, their progress and their love of learning is to truly thrive.
