Northfields Education Centre

About our centre

Northfields Education Centre works with KS3 students wo have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.  As with our other centres, some students may be permanently excluded from local schools, and be with us till they transition to their next school.  Some maybe with us through Partnership work we do with their school, spending some time in the centre where the support is around enabling improved engagement and progress at the mainstream setting, and some maybe there for medical reasons.  For a few, Taunton Deane Partnership College is their named school on and EHCP for this key stage.


All our students have individualised programmes, that are based on building relationships and access to Core Curriculum subjects, enrichment opportunities and social and emotional work in a small, safe supportive environment.

What our parents say


"Our child was comfortable going in every day, and totally changed for the positive"


"The communication between us and school was second to none"


"The level of support we have received through some very difficult times has been exceptional.  The smiling faces and the 'nothing is too much' attitude has been so welcome and needed.  Through all this the standard of teaching and learning has been exceptional"
