Welcome to Mayfield – Chestnut Centre

Chestnut is a centre for children aged 5-11 years, experiencing complex social, emotional and mental health difficulties.  We have twenty places available.  The main aim of the centre is to support children to be able to move back into mainstream provision or to signpost them to a specialist provision that can meet their needs.

At Chestnut we look at the whole child as an individual, and we assess all areas in depth to create tailored plans for each child.  Many of the children do successfully move on to mainstream provision.  We offer a supported transition when we feel children are ready to move on.

Admission to Mayfield, Chestnut Centre is through the Local Authority pupil placement panel.
