Inaura School is an independent, co-educational special school for pupils who have complex educational, social, emotional and mental health needs.
The school has 4 education learning bases located in the county of Somerset. We provide student educational day placements for Somerset and the surrounding local authorities including: Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, Devon, North Somerset and Wiltshire. Our Key Stage 2-3 learning base is located in Wedmore. Our Forest School is located near Godney, Wells while our two Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 learning bases are located in Burrowbridge and East Huntspill.
All of our students have Education Health and Care Plans and are placed with us through their local authority SEND departments.
We work with students who have encountered challenges in mainstream, pupil referral units and other special school settings. Many of our students have experienced failure in multiple educational settings. That is why we do things a little differently.
Our approach encompasses a relational and non-coercive philosophy for teaching and learning. This philosophy focuses on building trust and systematically removing the barriers that pupils have previously encountered in their learning journeys.
