(UK) Headingley: Plans submitted for new special school

July 26, 2023, Yahoo News: Moorfield House: Leeds special needs school submits plan for Grade II-listed building in Headingley

N. England

Polaris, which runs seven schools across the country for pupils with learning difficulties, has applied for planning permission to set up a new one in Moorfield House in Headingley. Under the scheme, the new school would cater for up to 80 pupils across both Moorfield House and an adjacent modern building on the site, known as the Brahm Building….

“Highly qualified, experienced, empathetic staff teams work closely with pupils to build trusting relationships, review their needs regularly, and differentiate the curriculum accordingly, so that individualised support for children’s special educational needs can be offered.

“All Polaris pupils benefit from small, friendly classes of a maximum of six pupils per class, allowing the teaching team to really get to know the children, achieve positive outcomes and succeed in providing pathways that enable a smooth transition to higher education, training, and apprenticeships.”

A decision on whether or not to approve the plans will be made in due course.
