On behalf of The Jane Moore Trust Board, staff, children and young people at Moore House Academy (MHA) – Dunkeld, a very warm welcome to you.

This handbook has been written for parents and prospective parents. The purpose of this handbook is to give you a good introduction to the school. It outlines the pupil profile used to inform placements for a child/young person, the vision values and aspirations of the school, and the curriculum provided including our Virtual Academy. We hope that you find the information contained in this handbook informative and comprehensive and that it gives you a real flavour of life here at MHA, Dunkeld.

At MHA, Dunkeld we aim to provide sector-leading care and education provision for neurodiverse children and young people aged 11 to18, who require highly specialised teaching, bespoke pastoral care and a range of dedicated services, including Speech & Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Psychological Interventions.

Prior to  coming to MHA our children and young people may not have been able to sustain mainstream school placements, but here our small class sizes, combined with individualised and bespoke curriculum pathways ensures that they maximise their potential and fulfil their aspirations at MHA, Dunkeld.

Our campus is located in a calm, rural environment near Dunkeld, where we provide specialist:

• Day education,

• Residential care and education,

• Virtual learning through our Virtual Academy,

• Outreach education,

• Therapeutic support.

We are excited to be currently working towards the launch of our new Primary School which will allow us to admit children & young people aged 5 to 18.

This handbook will also share the views of parents/carers and other professionals who have had a close association with the school. If there is anything you would like to discuss about the school or arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to contact the school. 

I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future.

Tracey Ford-McNicol

Head of Education
