Welcome to Meadowcroft School
Meadowcroft school is based on three sites, The Gallery, The Hub and The Works, each providing very focused care for the children we support. All our children have complex social, emotional and mental health needs and many have additional severe learning and communication difficulties. Most of the children we care for have struggled to engage in formal education, so our job involves far more than simply providing an engaging and creative setting for them to learn in. We come alongside our children, take an interest in their lives and help them to overcome barriers that prevent them engaging in education.
The staff at our school know each child well enough to be able to set ambitious, realistic targets and put in place a structure of support to ensure they achieve them. Success looks very different for each child, so we take time to build personal plans and celebrate the progress they make.
When our pupils leave Meadowcroft, we want them to have secured the skills and confidence they need to find sustainable employment; developed interests and hobbies to keep them motivated; and learnt how to make and sustain healthy relationships. With these key skills, we know our children can be healthy, happy, successful adults.Click here for all the latest news & events at Meadowcroft School
At the Meadowcroft School we believe that every child and young person has the potential to be a ‘STAR’. We provide a bespoke system that underpins and runs throughout our core values for staff, pupils and all stakeholders.
We believe all students have the right to learn what is in our full curriculum offer; we have a duty to ensure all students are not provided with a narrowed or marginalised version and to develop their self-belief to comprehend and complete tasks to a good standard..
We will aim for stability for all our young people. This will allow teachers to develop expertise and teaching materials to support the curriculum. This in turn will support our students to have the ambition to achieve their learning goals.
Since Luke has been at Meadowcroft, his life and our lives have changed massively; he’s a completely different person. It’s the first time he’s been in a school that fully understands him. The communication between the school and home is first class. I know that staff at Meadowcroft have Luke’s interests at heart – It’s a brilliant place!”
The school know that I want to go into landscaping when I’m older so they have been able to put me on Land Based Studies course. I would never believe that I could be getting a Gold Award and a chance to go to Buckingham Palace. It’s really good to be in a place where people understand me.”
Meadowcroft School has helped me give my son opportunities and the future he deserves, and given me the wonderful son I always knew I had. He just needed to be understood.”
The staff team are patient, good listeners, friendly and kind. They helped me apply for colleges and prepare for my interviews to get onto the course I wanted to do.”
Due to the adverse weather and continuation of forecasted snow conditions throughout the morning, we have decided to close the school today Friday 10th March. We look forward to seeing pupils back on Monday 13th March.”
