Nearly all of our students arrive with a Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) which outlines specific needs and outlines their specific needs and the support and additional provision they require. of our pupils arrive at Belmont Park School with an EHCP and a wide range of learning difficulties.
We believe passionately in supporting and nurturing our pupils as well as aspiring to provide them with outstanding and creative learning opportunities.
We are a special school with capacity of 65 on roll currently offering education to pupils across Year 7 – 11. We work with some of the most deprived and challenging children in the local community
We have a small number, of students who are on assessment placements as their EHCP are being drafted. Waltham Forest students are referred through borough Special Educational Needs Service. Other local authorities can also apply to this service for a placement at Belmont Park School. We currently have students attending from outer borough who reside in Hackney, Redbridge, and Islington.
In view of the gaps in learning that many, if not all of our pupils arrive with we provide opportunities for all pupils to gain qualifications across GCSEs, BTEC Level 1 and 2, City & Guilds and Functional Skills Levels 1 and 2. Additionally, there are many opportunities where we empower our pupils, off-site through building their self-confidence and enabling them to develop their individual strengths and endeavour to provide them with the skills they need to lead constructive and fulfilling adult lives.
We demonstrate high expectations for our pupils as a starting point to aspiring to level the playing field for them whilst offering them the same quality and equality of education as their mainstream counterparts have access to. We ensure that new pupils are assessed accordingly with relevant and targeted interventions and support put in-place as early as when they are transitioning into the school as our starting point to enabling pupils to access the curriculum whilst developing a sense of belonging at Belmont Park School.
