SEMH Support

Welcome to Young People’s Academy (YPA) SEMH Support Service

YPA is a special co-educational school for students aged 11-16 with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties. Our team of experienced and qualified teachers work with children and young people to help identify the cause of their behaviour and supports them to access learning.

Our SEMH service offers support and guidance to mainstream schools where a child or young person’s behaviour is linked to an underlying social, emotional or mental health cause. We also provide training at INSET days or bespoke training to meet the needs of the school.

Schools we have worked with at INSET days, training or consultancy days include:

– Red Balloon – Harrow

– Uxbridge High School

– Heathrow Aviation UTC

– Bishop Ramsay SCITT

  The Skills Hub, Hillingdon

– St Philip’s School, Chessington

– Dysart School, Surbiton

– Bedelsford School, Kingston

– Carew Academy, Sutton

– The Link Primary School, Sutton

– The Link Secondary School, Sutton

– Nightingale Community Academy, Wandsworth

 We have also worked closely with Innovating Minds, a social enterprise that supports young people with their emotional and mental health throughout their education. You can read more on the work they have completed with YPA on page 5 of their Social Impact Report.
