Welcome to Dovecote, Bishop Young Academy’s Specialist Resource Provision.

Dovecote is our onsite Resource Provision for students with Complex Communication Needs and Autism. All students at Dovecote have Education Health Care Plans (EHCP) and access to a specialist team offering a bespoke supported curriculum. The aim of this area of our website is to help you to find out more about our offer for students accessing Dovecote.

Our team of experienced specialists includes our SENCO, a resource provision manager, curriculum lead, HLTAs and teaching assistants who will work with you and your families to ensure you have a blended learning experience during your time at Bishop Young Academy’s Dovecote.

Our brand new dedicated provision is due for completion in September 2021 and will feature a state of the art sensory room, a calm room, life skills room, computer room, several classrooms, a hygiene suite and multiple meeting rooms to meet with the onsite Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) or Educational Psychologist (EP).

Over the course of the build we'll be updating this section of our website with new content, including videos, podcasts and pictures. Keep checking back and keep an eye on our social media for further updates.

We look forward to working with you and your parents/carers to help you to be the very best that you can be. In partnership to educate, nurture, empower.

At Bishop Young we commit to educate all young people entrusted to our care by giving them a high standard of teaching and setting them appropriate accessible challenges throughout their time with us.
We promise to nurture our students by providing them with a safe, caring and loving environment in which to develop in self-confidence and self-understanding within the Christian family of the school community.
We pledge to empower them by giving them opportunities to enable them to recognise their potential and to support them in expressing themselves within school and in the wider community.

We are looking forward to having you join Dovecote and our Bishop Young Family.
