Dear Parents,

As the Executive Principal of Eko Pathways, I am very proud of the personal development and accomplishments that the children achieve. This school offers quality education for children with social, emotional and/or mental health difficulties. It is an all through school on a single site. In order to meet the children’s various and complex needs, we have a range of expert teaching and support staff, in addition to educational psychologists, a clinical psychologist and speech and language therapist to name a few.

In the primary school we offer a broad curriculum and enrichment activities. At the heart of the curriculum is the Resilience Framework and Thrive. These aspects allow the children to develop their emotional understanding of themselves and how to self-regulate with greater confidence. Other activities that support the development of the whole child include weekly sessions at Lambourne End, Forest School, ECAM instrumental lessons in Year 5, cooking skills and Thrive 1:1 sessions.

We carefully assess the child’s needs on entry to Eko Pathways to see how their time will be managed. Some children will start off with five days per week, whereas other children may start with four days per week. We work flexibly with the child’s mainstream school, creating joint targets to meet at both schools, in order to build up the child’s knowledge and skills, to eventually return to their mainstream peers. This decision is jointly agree between Eko Pathways, the mainstream school and the parents of the child.

In the secondary school, the focus for the students is on their future pathways. We want the children to really think about their next steps after Eko Pathways and understand how their learning and behaviour now can impact on their future. There are aspirations for students to go into direct employment, apprenticeships, college, and university, for those who want to go further with their studies. The curriculum centres around a range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, Religion, Art, PE, Media and Food Technology. In addition to the core curriculum that we offer, there are life skill opportunities as well as preparing the children for the world of work. This includes at least two work experience places before finishing school.

We are very excited about the potential that each child has and the team are motivated by how much progress the children and young people make over time. As we await the build of the new secondary site to complete, we are busily planning exciting new learning opportunities that will support the children even further in fulfilling their potential.

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

Kind regards
Clinton Pascoe

Coronavirus Update


We hope you are all keeping well and taking care of yourselves and your families.  Thank you for all you are doing.

Our aim during this time is the safety and well-being of our children and staff. In addition to this, we recognise and recommend the need for continuity, routine, and structure for parents and carers and children.

We would ask all parents and carers to take the time to read the information below, so that as a community we support our children over the coming weeks.  We know this may be a repeat of information you have had before.

Our school site is open from Monday 8th June. The return to our site is based on ensuring the health, safety and well-being of everyone in our school community. We are phasing pupils and staff back to the East Ham site gradually with this in mind. Parents will receive a letter inviting their child or young person back to school based learning. We will make a joint decision with parents about supporting their child to return to our site or to continue with learning at home, based on the child's individual risk assessment. If pupils are returning to our site, a home-school agreement must be signed by parents. There is also a parent handbook available for all parents to read. This is available on our web site in the Pupils and Parents tab; letters and notices. 

We will continue to keep you updated as things change and will provide some information on various support available to you that you may find useful over the coming months. We will also provide a list of organisations that can offer support during this time.

These are exceptional circumstances and very difficult times for so many people. Please be assured that we remain committed to supporting children and care deeply about our school community. Now, more than ever, your support is needed and appreciated. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school on 0207 8845 234.
