Who We Are

Welcome to White Trees School!

White Trees School is a specialist provision for pupils with complex Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs in East Hertfordshire. We offer education to a wide range of pupils and take great pride in helping them achieve their potential. We support our pupils, from one to one specialist teaching to small group learning in the classroom.

"...in place are detailed, good quality schemes of work and planning for subjects that are appropriately adapted to meet the needs of all individual pupils. As a result of this work, the school’s curriculum now provides pupils with ample opportunities to learn across all curriculum subjects"

What We Do

How We Do it

In order to support our pupils we focus on their  social and emotional needs first. Then we ensure that teaching is effective and maximises pupil progress.  We do this by ensuring every pupil has a learning journey that fits around them, through our curriculum pathways and high quality, adaptive teaching. Teaching and progress is routinely reflected upon at White Trees School and leaders continuously strive for the best outcomes for each pupil.

Since bringing in the new systems around the curriculum, planning and teaching expectations, teaching has been graded as 'good' via our internal monitoring and School Improvement Consultant and our Summer term has seen the biggest improvement yet, with 100% of pupils making expected progress in English, mathematics, Science, PSHCEE, Social Skills, humanities, Art, DT and modern foreign languages as well as gaining all expected qualification for functional skills English and mathematics and BTEC Cooking, Sport and Work Skills. With a massive 67% of pupil makings more than expected progress in PSCHEE and Social Skills, we feel we have achieved greatly since the school has been overhauled and look forward to building on our success in the new academic year.
