Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome to Hatchside School website.

Hatchside School is part of the Astrum Multi Academy Trust (AMAT), many of you may know Newbridge School, which is the first school of the Trust, therefore, Hatchside School will benefit from working alongside an already established Outstanding School. AMAT has worked with the Local Authority to open Hatchside School in April 2021, we are catering for children with the following special educational needs and disability (SEND):

  • speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)
  • social, emotional and mental health (SEMH)
  • cognition and learning
  • Communication and interaction.

Hatchside School caters for children aged 2-7 years old, when at full capacity in 2023/24, the School will cater for 64 children across EYFS and KS1. Within this there will 16 full time Assessment places commissioned by Redbridge Local Authority. The School will include an “assessment” provision for children whose needs require further assessment prior to a permanent placement being made either in the school or another provision. Our education plan and assessment approaches take full account of the needs of those children who take up these places.

For any of you who live local you will have seen the school building being developed over the past year and will notice that we are now open. It is very exciting for our school to be welcoming children and their families, the building has been purpose built to meet children’s needs and we are very much looking forward to supporting children to reach their full potential.

Warmest Wishes

Vicky Mummery

Head of School
