Welcome to Our School
Hello, and welcome to our website.
New Park Academy is a specialist provision for pupils aged 7-16 who have been assessed as having social, emotional and/or mental health difficulties, often linked to other issues such as specific and/or moderate learning or communication difficulties.
We aim to make our curriculum as exciting as possible for our children and young people so they can regain their confidence in learning. Our own staff and other professionals create a wraparound service to ensure that we can meet their needs in a holistic manner.
At New Park, we help children be respectful, well-mannered and tolerant citizens of the local and wider community. Our classes are no more than 8/9 children, supported by at least two qualified members of staff, with additional support available. All pupils at New Park will have access to a range of services such as Speech and Language Therapy, an educational psychologist, a school nurse and other professionals.
We have an active reintegration programme, and there is also access to College Link placements for KS4 students.
We work with a wide range of agencies from health and social care to ensure we can signpost services to you as parents, to ensure your child gets the wrap around care they need. We support the completion of Family Assessments when you may feel you require support in your family home.
We further provide off-site tuition programmes, mainly aimed at KS4 students who find it hard to engage with more formal class based education. The programme is negotiated with the student and parents/carers, and supports the student in their personal development with the ultimate objective to help them towards a successful transition to post 16 education and/or training.
Each year we have at least one residential trip. Trips have included an ‘environmental challenge’, a visit to a concentration camp and a yr 7/8 trip to Amsterdam.
At New Park, we recognize that high self- esteem, confidence, peer support and clear lines of communication with trusted adults help all children. Our school establishes and maintains an ethos where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to.
Our Mission Statement ‘Believe and Succeed’ is put into practice by us providing:
a positive, caring and nurturing ethos
a broad, interesting and challenging curriculum
an interactive and stimulating learning environment,
a supportive partnership between school, home and the community

The Sovereign Trust
The Trust is formed of three special schools, Manor Academy, Pictor Academy and New Park Academy, with the aim of developing a vision and strategic plans for educational needs in Trafford, Salford and surrounding areas. With this collaboration we are able to increase the opportunities for our staff, children and young people. We are able to offer our specialist knowledge to other schools, academies and professional bodies regionally; through advice, consultancy and training.
The Trust will be outward looking to support the needs of SEN learners and providers in the locality and region.
Please find a link to The Sovereign Trust website here.
We want our children and young people to be the best they can be within an environment which challenges and supports.
We focus upon academic standards but equally important to us is the development of independence skills to enable all to achieve and stand out as valued member of their communities.
On June 1st 2018. New Park joined Manor and Pictor Academy as a member of the Sovereign Trust.
