Cornerstone is a new special school that is currently in development and will be based at Halt Robin Road, Belvedere. The school will cater for learners/pupils with complex social, emotional and mental health needs that present in the context of the young person’s ASD, e.g. young people of average to high cognitive abilities who require a specialised learning environment such as low arousal class rooms and a high level of therapeutic/pastoral care and approach to have their special educational needs met. It must have also been determined that the needs of the individual learner cannot be met via a lower level of SEN provision, such as a Special Resource Provision.
Beverley Gardner, CEO, has said:
‘This is an exciting opportunity for the trust to further meet the needs of Bexley children. For too long, these children’s needs could not be met locally, meaning that children had to travel quite a distance just to go to school. They will now be able to go to school where they live, and enjoy the benefits of both belonging to their new school and to Trinitas.’
Simon Godden, Executive Principal, has commented:
‘This is a fantastic opportunity to have a huge impact on the future of some of our most vulnerable young people. We are working tirelessly, alongside the Department for Education and Bexley Council, to ensure the provision is of the highest quality and ready to open in September 2021.’
Cornerstone will be seeking a range of staff for the new school. Please contact us if you would like to register your interest
