Red Moor School

Red Moor School is a specialist provision positioned near Lanlivery in mid Cornwall. The school provides full-time specialist co-education for up to 36 children and young people aged 5 to 16 who have social, emotional, mental health and communication difficulties or associated behaviours that challenge.

Unable to achieve in a mainstream environment, our aim is to help pupils excel by providing a structured, nurturing approach, with students accessing a broad, balanced, engaging and extraordinarily rich curriculum.

With its large building and extensive grounds, Red Moor School is an environment where children learn to thrive both in the classroom and outdoors, helping them to be the best

Our Ethos

Red Moor School has one simple vision – to deliver the best education for every child that attends.

We will work tirelessly to ensure that your child has the very best opportunities to progress in their learning and in their emotional development. We invest in the best resources to enhance the schools learning environment and ensure that staff receive a high level of training so we are more able to help your child succeed in school and in life.

We know from talking to parents and carers that when their child joins us it is often at a point when they feel beaten by the experiences they have had trying to find the right educational placement for their child. Families often feel like they have been torn apart by an education system that does not meet the needs of their child. At Red Moor we put every child at the forefront of our thinking. We design a personalised educational experience that will re-engage, motivate and excite our children. Our carefully considered nurturing support helps the children to grow in confidence and begin to dream big again. As a result of our interventions the wounds that families have received can begin to heal and everyone can flourish.

We have developed a high level of specialism in working with children with ASC conditions, attachment difficulties and a range of learning difficulties. We have helped the most disaffected and challenging children begin to make outstanding educational and emotional progress. We do not give up on our children and will do everything we can to make education work for them. We are passionate in helping our families and will go the extra mile to ensure that they feel listened to and supported.

When a child joins our school we expect that:

  • They will achieve the best results and qualifications. We know that this is different for every child. Many of our children will gain excellent GCSE results. Many will complete vocational qualifications such as BTEC and foundation skills. Many students will attend relevant work placements and gain qualifications and essential experience that will position them better for life after school.
  • They will progress outstandingly well across a broad range of subjects including literacy and numeracy.
  • They will develop emotional resilience and a better social awareness so they can begin and continue to experience success.
  • At Red Moor we know that there is no magic wand that can be waved to make things better for our children and families. Instead we offer hard work, dedication, the best trained professionals, support out of school and in holidays and an assurance that we will do all that we can to ensure the best outcomes for your child.
