Willows is a small centre which provides education for young people receiving support for their mental health condition as an inpatient at Parkview Clinic.
Depending on a pupil's medical treatment, teaching takes place on the ward or at the centre, which is a short walk from the clinic.
The centre is a small school with six classrooms and a hall. It is set in a very peaceful location, which makes it easier to concentrate and provides a calm environment to work in.
The centre provides education from KS3 to KS5 (school years 7 to 13). Whilst pupils are at Willows, we keep in touch with their home schools and parents and carers to inform them about both their attendance and progress.
We have a small team of staff, which to create a friendly and welcoming environment pupils call teachers by their first names.
All of the staff at Willows have experience working with young people with mental health conditions. They work closely with the ward staff, attending weekly ward rounds and CPA (Care Plan Approach) reviews in order to make sure that they are able to give pupils the best support possible.
