The Sky Academy - Public Consultation

We are consulting with our stakeholders on ceasing to operate the overnight provision at The Sky Academy in line with the details below. This consultation runs from Monday 16 January 2023 until Friday 10 February 2023.

The Sky Academy in Taunton, Somerset which currently caters for up to 80 young people with Social, Emotional, Mental Health needs (SEMH), Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) has historically had facilities for up to 10 overnight places. The proposal is to reduce this number to nil, but there is no change to the overall number of planned places.  

We are seeking to cease to offer an overnight provision as this will enable the Academy to utilise the overnight space to provide a wider range of therapeutic and alternate learning opportunities for the young people on roll. 

We would really appreciate your feedback. There is the opportunity to ask any of your questions through our public consultation meeting, or through the questionnaire below.

Our public consultation meeting will be held at The Sky Academy, Pickeridge Close, Taunton, Somerset, TA2 7HW on Tuesday 7 February 2023 from 4.00pm – 6.30pm.  If you are unable to attend the consultation meeting you can always send your queries to and we will get back to you. 

We look forward to hearing from you, receiving your questionnaire feedback, and/or talking with you at our consultation meeting.
