The Forwards Centre is an alternative educational provision for Key Stage 1 & 2 pupils who have experienced difficulties in their mainstream schools because of their social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

The provision caters for up to 40 children.

Our values and ethos are based on our commitment to celebrating achievement in order to bring about long lasting, positive changes to pupils’ lives.

At the Forwards Centre we will:

  • help you understand your emotions and try never to put you in a situation that will make you anxious or distressed.
  • help you understand that learning new things means trying hard and making lots of mistakes and send you home each day with a new set of positive, happy memories.
  • help you build relationships and make friends.
  • provide a kind, understanding place where you feel accepted and safe enough to make long lasting, positive changes to your life.
