Yeoman Park Academy

Yeoman Park Academy (YPA) is a special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) school located in Mansfield, county of Nottinghamshire, UK. The proposal is for the construction of a new purpose-built facility to cater for 138 pupils with a wide range of abilities, aged 3-18. The school will accommodate pupils with autism (ASC), profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and severe learning difficulties (SLD), with areas separated by category of age and ability.

The vision is to provide model learning spaces, which will enable the school to deliver an excellent and appropriate educational experience in an environment where students can flourish and reach their full potential. The new school will have teaching spaces for primary, secondary and sixth form levels.

A key objective for the school proposal is to create a suitable learning environment for pupils with special educational needs to replace the existing accommodation of Yeoman Park Academy, which has been deemed no longer sufficient.

The proposed development responds to the need to replace existing structures which have reached the end of their life, as part of the DfE School Rebuilding Programme. Replacement facilities are required to ensure continuation of the learning offer the school currently provides, including achieving Net Zero Carbon in Operation (NZCiO). The school will continue to employ the same number of permanent staff for teaching, support and administration.
