The Greenwell Academy Statement of Provision
The Greenwell Academy is a purpose built special school in Harlow offering a nurturing, inclusive environment for sixty four pupils with SEMH and associated needs with residential provision for fifteen pupils. We have high expectations for each child to leave as a confident young adult who is well prepared for the future. The school will open in 2023 and is sited in Harlow next to the Sir Frederick Gibberd secondary school.
The academy is named after Richard Greenwell who until tragically losing his life to cancer in 2020 was a governor at Beckmead having spent most of his career in senior positions in organisations looking after and educating disadvantaged children.
The Greenwell academy will relentlessly drive for success, celebrate achievement and promote a climate of possibility. All members of the school community will be kind, polite and respectful and have the opportunity to access stand-out education and care that will provide the platform for meaningful outcomes and improved life chances.
The Beckmead Trust' Schools reflect a commitment to pupils' academic, physical, social, vocational and emotional progress. To give children an opportunity to flourish in all aspects of their lives the Trust believes in nurturing all members of the school community. We believe the environment needs to reflect this by being warm, purposeful and understandable.
The curriculum presents formal, informal and enriched opportunities for development and progress. This enables the children who graduate from Beckmead to become independent, connected members of the communities where they live and the workplaces that may employ them.
