Keyham Lodge and Millgate Schools’ Federation comprises of two behavioural day schools situated on the north and south of Leicester, enjoying the use of a small residential facility based on Millgate’s School site. Both Millgate School and Keyham Lodge School have created environments where the emotional support and development for all students is paramount. The provision is extremely flexible and meets nearly all the needs of the most challenging and vulnerable students across the city who have been identified with social and behavioural difficulties. All our students have either educational health and care plans or statements of special educational needs although part of our provision supports transfer and assessment of students.
Our federation believes in educating and nurturing the whole person through a holistic multi-agency approach. The schools apply a consistent approach of high expectations, discipline and a sense of caring, leading to raised self-esteem and self-confidence and ultimately more successful outcomes. Our aim is to enable our students to access quality learning in a supportive environment, with opportunities of work-experience and college placements where they can experience positive learning situations with their peers from other schools.
Our ethos of respecting and rewarding is proven; within a short space of time most students feel included into the school community and start to engage in learning.
The federation intends to measure its success not only in terms of academic achievement, but in terms of our students’ future in the world of work and independent living. We envisage students going on to and accessing further education and ultimately securing a job.
