What the school says...

Haywood Grove is a Hertfordshire maintained special school for primary aged children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH).
We provide a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment where children are treated as individuals without judgement or comparison.
We have a passionate conviction that all our children can achieve no matter what they have experienced or done and a total commitment to their success at Haywood Grove and beyond.
We take a unique approach to managing and modifying behaviour that is based on nurture and non-punitive approaches and our website www.haywoodgrove.co.uk aims to give you more information about what we do and what we provide.
We aim to give children the freedom to explore emotions and social behaviour so that behaviour can be unlearnt or adapted by modelling, coaching and teaching a more appropriate range of behaviours. We believe that anti-social behaviours come from an unconscious, fear based state of stress. We do not believe that punishment and reward is the most effective way to support behavioural change. Self-management and self-regulation of behaviour is a far more effective way to achieve pro-social behaviour.
