Prospective Parents at Hatchside School

Dear Prospective Parents/Carers

Welcome to Hatchside School website, Hatchside School will be part 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 a new free school in April 2021 to cater 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 is for children 2-7 years old, when at full capacity in 2023/24, Hatchside School will cater for 64 children across EYFS and KS1 within this their 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 that live local you will have seen the school building being developed over the last year and will notice the building is now in its last pre-opening phase of the build. It is very exciting to see our school becoming a building that will be ready for children, the building has been purpose built to meet children’s needs and we are very much looking forward to welcoming children and staff in April.

Warmest Wishes

Vicky Mummery

Head of School
