Update about Horizon Schools and HEAL during the Coronavirus/ Covid-19 Pandemic
All of our schools and HEAL continue to remain open.
We are following all of the latest DfE/ Government and NHS guidance and ensuring our pupils and staff teams can remain as safe as possible during these difficult times.
During the current ‘lockdown’ and period of social distancing, we know that many children will spend much more time using social media and the internet. Parents/ carers can help to keep their children safe online by using this DfE backed website, which provides up to date information about a range of topics https://parentinfo.org/
Schools will close for the Easter break as usual. You will receive a letter confirming arrangements for returning to school after the break.
Your child’s Head Teacher will keep you updated with the latest news about any changes. Please do contact them in the first instance if you have any questions. Stay safe everyone.
Our schools will have their own dedicated web pages in the near future. For further information about any of our schools, please contact the relevant school directly. We look forward to hearing from you.
Horizon specialist education services are well known for supporting learners to secure sound educational outcomes and have the skills and resilience to succeed in life beyond school.
Our schools are DfE registered, independent special schools which provide high quality specialist education for pupils from the age of 7 years, who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties and a range of other needs, including ADHD and autism. Many pupils will have formal diagnoses and an Education, Health and Care Plan.
Our personalised, inclusive and stimulating programmes of learning are delivered by experienced, suitably qualified teams of staff who are passionate about making a difference. At Horizon, we know that education matters. It is crucial to individual development, well-being and improving life chances.
Our bespoke programme, Horizon Education Alternative Learning (HEAL), is designed to provide an effective, interim solution for learners who are out of education. We know that a significant number of children are missing out on education for a variety of reasons; many beyond their control, including relocation, illness, school refusal or exclusion. HEAL is geared towards enabling children and young people to re-engage in learning, continue with studies while receiving support to return to a more formal school or college setting. The focus of support is personalised, according to learner needs and priorities. For the majority, the focus will be on completion of qualifications, preparation for independence, entry in to training or the world of work.
Horizon Care and Education is a full member of the National Association of independent Schools and non-Maintained Special Schools (NASS).
Paul Callander is the Proprietor of all schools for Horizon Care and Education.
