Supporting children with autism and SEMH in a bespoke and nurturing environment.
Remote Learning Policy
Catch Up Plan March 2021
The MeeTwo app provides a safe and secure forum for teenagers wanting to discuss any issue affecting their lives.
The school is set on the border of Cheshire East and the Peak District and provides specialist primary and secondary education for children with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, individuals on the autism spectrum and young people with ADHD, dyspraxia and dyslexia.
Our specialist multi-disciplinary team of leaders, carers, therapists and educationalists work seamlessly together. They teach and proactively support children who have been subjected to adverse childhood experiences, including trauma, toxic stress and associated mental wellbeing difficulties, aiming to break the cycle of adversity.
We have a specific provision within the school called the Quiet Learning Zone where we support children and young people who have an autistic spectrum condition including Asperger’s syndrome and those who have communication and sensory difficulties. The environment and teaching approaches are bespoke and tailored to ensure our children and young people thrive and can develop their self-esteem.
High Peak is a healthy, happy and safe environment that makes a positive difference to the children within our care. We have high expectations of ourselves and our children so we can all reach our true potential. Through our nurturing and therapeutic approach we will enable all our children to leave as successful, valued and independent people.
Our positive expectations are based on:
Healthy and well Prepared
Growth mindset Aiming high
Happiness Kindness and compassion
These expectations help children to develop behaviours that prepare them for adulthood and a good quality of life.

High Peak, Success Stories, Kedleston Group News
"How you have managed to organise an emergency stay for 12 kids in this short time, and for them to settle like this, is amazing, I should know I used to work in children's homes."
“‘Thanks for all the support you have given our child, particularly over these last few days, it really is appreciated.”
"I just wanted to say how lovely it was to meet you this morning and to see all the work our daughter has been doing with you. We are delighted with the progress our daughter is making and in such a short time too!"
"You have got a good measure of our child and we really like your straightforward, no-nonsense approach with her. Our child responds well to such consistent and firm boundaries. We are sure they will do well with you all at High Peak. Thank you."
Interim Headteacher: Rachel Bilgic
