What Needs Does ERS Support?
We accept children who:
- need a small class and a supportive environment
- are particularly shy or vulnerable, or who have had a poor school experience e.g have been bullied or have refused to go to school
- have dyslexia (mild to severe)
- have dyspraxia
- have speech and language difficulties
- would benefit from from focused language and social interaction activities
We are also able to help some children:
- whose own learning is impeded by concentration difficulties
- who have Asperger's syndrome or high-functioning autism
- who have other special educational needs such as Turner's syndrome
- if your child has other specific difficulties, not included here, this can be discussed when you visit
We can cater for some children who have been diagnosed with ASD or ADHD. Unfortunately we are unable to cater for children who have been diagnosed with more complex issues such as ASD and ADHD.

Expertise and Aim
ERS has developed a high level of expertise and practical experience in helping children with a wide range of needs, including some who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs from their Local Education Authority (LEA). Whilst most of our children could attend other mainstream schools, the provision at ERS enables them to flourish rather than just survive.
Our aim is always to enable each individual child to make the best possible progress, and as such our input can be for their whole school career or for a shorter period to help refocus their progress. Before entry, each child is considered individually and a decision to offer a place is based on that child's need, our available provision and the balance of needs within the appropriate year group.
