The Answer is YES@AretéLearningTrust

A national award-winning organisation with expertise in inclusive learning and sporting activities is expanding its services as it becomes a specialist Areté Learning Trust provider.

Headed by Kath Lawson and Steffy Cappleman, Yes@AreteLearningTrust (formerly Yes@Richmond School) has provided training for hundreds of school staff, parents and pupils since it started in 2017. The team have also operated as part of the school’s Enhanced Mainstream School (EMS) which was set up in 2010 and which was decommissioned, following the NYCC Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) review at the end of March 2020. Now operating as Yes@Areté Learning Trust, their work will be across the Trust’s three member schools of Richmond, Northallerton and Stokesley to raise greater awareness for their innovative support and services available.

Kath Lawson, Specialist Teacher, said: “Although this is an end of an era, we will be holding a launch event  to celebrate not only the start of the exciting developments of our new project but also the incredible achievements of the 43 schools we have supported over the past decade. It is wonderful to acknowledge the teamwork and good practice that has been developed during our time as Richmond Enhanced Mainstream School for Cognition and Learning.

“Already 1,004 teachers, parents and pupils have benefited from training from Yes@RichmondSchool, as well as a further 141 students enjoying our Big Lottery funded and highly successful ‘Activities for All’ programme.

The remit as an EMS was all about building capacity in schools and, over the years, YES@Areté Learning Trust have worked with a host of innovative and leading educators, supportive parents and many inspirational pupils. Their current practice is based on what they have learnt from them and from other professionals leading research in the field of inclusion nationally and internationally. 

Yes@Areté learning Trust is looking forward to delivering traded support for local schools and colleges alongside opportunities for schools to be affiliates of YES@AretéLearningTrust which and involved in research around inclusive practice.
