Letter from the Local Authority about partial school opening
Letter from Deborah Myers Head of Children and Young People, Education and Schools for East Riding
Harland House is an Enhanced Resource Provision jointly initiated between Bridlington School and the Local Authority to cater for KS3 students with Educational Health Care Plans. It caters for small groups of KS3 students who experience social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
Harland House is split between a house in the grounds of Bridlington School and a corridor above the admin offices. Each area is self-contained, creating a homely feel with a kitchen, comfortable seating, IT facilities, toilets and gardens as well as two classrooms and a small breakout room. Students are able to access main school for PE, dinner and at times mainstream lessons. The aim is to further develop students’ social and academic skills by encouraging independence and integration within a mainstream school environment. Hopefully, this will give our students the confidence to move into further education.
Harland House students enjoy bespoke learning pathways tailored to their individual needs and recognise the need for peer group and adult interactions.
Harland House is the base for these individual pathways but they also reach further into the student’s overall development, through purposeful curriculum enhancement trips and visits, and at other suitable venues away from Harland House.
All students are offered a rich and varied curriculum including literacy and numeracy, the sciences, ICT, humanities and art and design. Approaches to teaching and learning are equally varied and range from adult led activities, independent learning, student-led learning and a variety of computer packages. A further competency based curriculum is used to develop social, emotional and behavioural skills and key learning skills.

Harland House Mission Statement
We aim to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment in which students can excel and thrive. Students’ thoughts, feelings and opinions will be valued and students challenged and motivated to achieve their personal goals, to promote a sense of achievement and self-worth because every child matters at Harland House.
Students are referred by the SEN Team at the East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority as a result of Educational Health Care Plans. The admission procedure can be obtained on request.
