At Sedgemoor Manor School, we encourage young people to follow their passions and to avoid placing limitations on what they can achieve. We work holistically with each student, guiding them to develop socially and emotionally, and providing them with the tools and strategies to address the challenges that their autism presents. Our aim is that they achieve the academic qualifications for the next step of their life journey, while building the confidence and resilience to pursue their ambitions.
Personalised learning that develops confidence
Every child is unique and every student at Sedgemoor Manor School receives an entirely individualised package of learning and support, tailored to their individual needs, strengths and aspirations. We differ from mainstream schools in that we do not expect our students to fit into what already exists. Highly specialised teachers, therapists and support staff work together closely to create a seamless, integrated approach for each young person, who is also assigned a learning mentor to support their personal development and re-engagement with learning.
Many of our students have had bad experiences at mainstream schools and time out of education. They often arrive at Sedgemoor Manor School lacking in confidence and disengaged from learning. We carefully transition young people into the school with learning that enables them to experience our ‘culture of success’ with stretching but attainable targets. As they settle into our school, learning becomes more challenging and structured.
