S10 Consultation

S10 Consultation – Autumn 2019

The Consultation Process

The Youth Engagement Trust would like to open The Axis Academy (SEMH 4 – 16) in September 2020. The school will admit 40 Students with EHC Plans, in the 4 to 16 age range, whose primary needs are Social, Emotional, & Mental Health (SEMH) related. Given the typical challenges and difficulties these children and young people face, and in response to the East Cheshire LA specification. We aim to achieve far better outcomes with our specific cohort than is possible for local schools by improving each learner’s life chances allowing them to thrive in modern Britain.

It is a requirement for the Youth Engagement trust chosen to run the school to hold a consultation set out by Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010. We are consulting on our plans to provide further information for the Secretary of State to support our application to enter into a Funding Agreement to ensure the school can open.

Our consultation period will run from Wednesday 2nd October 2019 to Wednesday 20th November 2019. During this time we will be inviting all stakeholders, prospective parents/carers and students, professionals, as well as the members of the local community to share their opinions on the proposals for The Axis Academy.

We would request that you complete the S10 Questionnaire to support our application. More information can be found on our S10 Consultation Leaflet.


We will record all views shared with us during the formal consultation period running from Wednesday 2nd October 2019 to Wednesday 13th November 2019.
