The Pivot Academies - Kirklees

Pivot Academy Bradley KS3

Here at The Pivot Academy in Bradley, Kirklees, the school offers two different types of provision based within one site:

The Bungalow is a specialised centre for young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health concerns and for students with an Education, Care and Health Plan in place. We follow a therapeutic and nurturing approach to our education; our core curriculum content focuses on English, Maths and PSHE and in addition we support students who may be struggling with a wide range of personal development issues.

Pivot 6 is a centre specifically for KS4 children who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. Our curriculum is based on core academics, creativity and personal development but also has a clear focus on developing children's softer skills. Our aim in Pivot 6 is to support students academically and socially and to prepare them for transition back into mainstream school.


Pivot Academy Cleckheaton KS4

The Pivot Academy at Cleckheaton works together with young people in Key Stage 4, their parents/carers and outside agencies across several local authorities. We can provide support for young people who have a wide range of complex needs, including Social, Emotional and Mental Health concerns, Special Educational Needs and those students who have Emotional, Health and Care Plans in place.

We focus on the individual needs of each student, giving them opportunities to gain a variety of qualifications and routes to employment. All of our pupils complete lessons in English, Maths, ICT and PSHE as core and aim to achieve accreditation from Entry Level 1 through to GCSE 1-9. Pupils can also develop functional and vocational skills including Music, Health and Fitness, Business and Photography.

Our team of nine are all highly trained with a wealth of experience in dealing with behavioural issues and complex needs. We also have a social worker on site and ensure dedicated time is spent with our social care team to support young people and their families/carers. In addition, we have access to an educational psychologist, therapeutic workers and counsellors.
