This section of the website contains information about the range of specific needs of our children and how we support them to learn and make progress, including our teaching approaches, environment and facilities.

We pride ourselves on meeting our children and young people’s needs to a high standard and achieve this in partnership with families and carers, providing advice and support, as we feel this is imperative.

We promote a multi-disciplinary approach to the pupils’ education and care that includes a full-time health care team - physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists supporting, and working collaboratively with, a highly qualified and dedicated staff. We also liaise extensively with outside agencies to ensure all aspects of well-being for our children and young people’s lives are met.

Here you will find information about the specilist facilities and approaches that we implement to work with our very special people!
