Riverside Meadows academy
St Neots & Wisbech Green
Riverside Meadows Academy has sites in both St Neots and Wisbech, welcoming learners from all over the County of Cambridgeshire and its neighbouring authorities.
Our key aim is to provide an educational and therapeutic package working closely with a range of professionals to meet the requirements of our learners' Education, Health and Care Plans. The school can accommodate up to 110 learners across the two sites.
We are an Academy where belonging, well-being, growth and achievement are at the core of all we do. These are important to our purpose, procedures and practice. We aim to provide a sense of security so that everyone feels safe, confident and can demonstrate respect for both themselves and others in a caring and nurturing environment. We encourage a sense of responsibility and accountability, with an awareness of fairness and an appreciation of diversity in an atmosphere aimed at realising and developing potential through challenge.
Wisbech Green is part of Riverside Meadows Academy, within the Horizons Education Trust, which support young people in Cambridgeshire and other close local authorities. We aim to provide the best possible care and education that we can for children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs between the ages of 11 and 16.
We aim to create individual and personalised pathways for our students that are built around their varied needs which will help them achieve positive outcomes and prepare them for their onward destinations into continuing education, work or training and help them have the skills for independence. We do this by giving our learners a variety of experiences within the classroom and outdoors.
We see strong relationships as the key to our success with our learners, and we do this through playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy. We work closely with our parents, carers, professionals and wider community for the best interest of our learners.
