Eko Pathways is an all through social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) school based in Newham, East London. The school has places for between 77 and 112 children and young people, catering for Year 1 to Year 11.

Most children are on full-time placements and maintain a link with their mainstream school. Eko Pathways is located in the heart of Newham and is a new £11.7million purposebuilt school. The site  features formal and informal classrooms, therapy rooms, a family room, a behaviour support room, food technology and science rooms and a new kitchen and the latest ICT equipment, plus an internal zen garden and a sports hall. The school was graded “Good” at its last Ofsted inspection (October 2019) and the inspectors were impressed by the level of care that our staff show towards pupils and recognised that we do have high expectations for their education and want them to excel beyond their lessons. The inspectors noted that pupils enjoy coming to the school and that our teaching staff have worked hard to develop each pupil’s sense of worth, while having a good understanding of each pupil’s social and emotional needs. The school’s provision for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs is innovative and successful (Ofsted October 2019).

Learn - Grow - Thrive

We look forward to working with you to get the best out of the children.
