About Acorn School

We are an independent co-educational school which provides learning and supportive learning environment for students from Key Stage 2-4 with Social, Emotional, Mental Health difficulties, Autism Spectrum Condition and/or Specific Learning Difficulties.

I am privileged to be the Head teacher of this nurturing school, where the individual child is at the heart of what we do. We recognise that every student is different, yet equal, and all staff are committed to treating each individual with inclusion, compassion and understanding. We understand that every student will have different needs and offer a safe and encouraging learning environment where, students can feel supported and encouraged to reach their full potential.

At Acorn School we aim to help our students to overcome their individual challenges by supporting them with underlying difficulties that may be leading to displays of frustration. A carefully planned and bespoke curriculum, which includes social development as well as academic and vocational learning allows our students to achieve the best possible outcomes.

We believe that all children and young people should be provided with the opportunity to achieve their individual potential; through building resilience, self regulation and trusting relationships, we support our students to flourish; this promotes improved outcomes, attainment and self-esteem.

Abbie Heard,

BA (QTS) Education
