The Willow Branch

Our Internal Social, Emotional and Mental Health Learning Base


Implemented in September 2022, The Willow Branch is a Learning Base, specifically designed to meet the needs of learners with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. The Learning Base is a supportive provision designed to better meet the needs of individual pupils who require a bespoke timetable of provision in order to be successful. The overarching aim of the base is to increase the amount of time pupils spend in school whilst reducing the number of suspensions.
