The school is part of Unity Education Trust, a Multi-Academy trust sponsoring mainstream, special and alternative provision academies from ages 3 to 19 in Norfolk since March 2017. Pinetree school is a co-educational school for 40 pupils KS3 & 4 from Y7-11 It is for pupils whose primary SEN is clearly identified as SEMH and have an EHCP. It prioritises places for those pupils who do not have a current long-term school place (PEX/CME).
The school is situated in the town of Thetford on the Norfolk-Suffolk border and as such, the school the school commissions places from both counties. Pinetree aims to give consistency by offering education until the end of KS4. However, if a pupil is identified as being able to reintegrate back into a mainstream school, Pinetree will work with the pupil, family and onward school to ensure the right support is in place in order for a smooth and successful transition to take place.
