A specialist environment with a family atmosphere
At the edge of picturesque Pennine Lancashire, Belmont Primary School offers boys that have struggled in mainstream school a more tailored education. Students at the school come from all over the northwest – occasionally further afield – and typically present challenging behaviour. Because their needs have to be met in a specialist environment, there are almost as many staff as there are children. The result is a communal feeling, where teachers and students all know each other, creating a welcoming ‘family’ atmosphere.
Headteacher Mark Fletcher sums this up, commenting: ‘We have a fantastic staff team who will always go the extra mile for these children.’
Happy and excited
Social, emotional and communication development are prioritised alongside academic achievement to give a more rounded learning experience One of the young men attending Belmont highlights his feelings about the school: ‘I feel happy that I’m going to school and getting to see my friends and I’m excited to learn new stuff every day.’
