Our Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) special school, located in Dinnington, needs a sponsor which can create a world class education environment and an outstanding experience for the children and young people who will attend.

We’re seeking a sponsor early on in the process of this exciting school development so that we can work together with parents, children and young people, the local community, partners and professionals who will be involved in delivering education for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties in Rotherham. We are committed to a strong process of co-production and our school partner will be too.
