  • SEMH Provision available in Wakefield (Evolve Academy and Enrich Academy)+

    At Evolve Academy and Enrich Academy, we provide education for pupils in KS2, KS3 and KS4 who, for whatever reason, are currently unable to attend a mainstream school. E

    We offer a nurturing, safe, inclusive and friendly environment where the building of trusting relationships is paramount. We have extremely high expectations and our pupils achieve good academic progress across the curriculum. We place an emphasis on improving reading, writing and maths skills through personalised and creative learning opportunities.

    Both academies  have a broad, creative curriculum that enables all pupils, regardless of need, to achieve their potential and thrive in their new schools. The curriculum aims to practically support pupils in wide-ranging ways; building strong foundations for positive emotional health and wellbeing by providing opportunities to further enhance and celebrate their many skills and talents. Pupils previously disengaged from education re-engage with a new-found enthusiasm and zest for learning.

  • How Evolve Academy and Enrich Academy support is accessed in Wakefield+

    Wakefield schools can refer for a step-out placement at Evolve Academy. This support is accessed through the Wakefield Inclusion Panel. The aim of the AP pathway is to provide a 6- 12 week placement in an alternative setting in order to undertake assessment plus some intervention which is focused on the pupil’s holistic needs, followed by their return and successful reintegration into their current mainstream school.
