‘Integrating pupils into mainstream education, the world of work and life’
Eleanor Smith is a special school for pupils with social, emotional, behavioural and mental health needs. It caters for pupils on a split site – Years R to Year 7 at the North Street site and Years 8 to 11 at Lawson Close. The school is in the London Borough of Newham, an ethnically diverse inner city area. Pupils are taught in small classes with a high adult to pupil ratio. Typically pupils are taught for three days at Eleanor Smith with two days spent at a mainstream link school with the aim of the provision to return the pupil full time to mainstream education.
