Welcome to our school

Dear Parents and Carers,

The information that you will find on the following pages will tell you a lot more about our school. Our core purpose is to meet the needs of primary aged pupils who have a wide range of complex learning needs.

For further information please contact the reception and the Head Teacher will be happy to discuss the school with you and arrange a visit if required.

Debby Gooderham | Headteacher

What we do

Our primary aim is to enable each individual, irrespective of their special need, to develop to their full potential.
We value an education which encourages children to grow in confidence and become as independent as possible within a positive, secure, safe and caring environment.

Teaching staff work closely with Therapy Services – especially Speech and Language Therapy; Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy. These programmes are an integral part of the child’s daily activity.

Christmas Performances

Our Christmas plays are taking place this week.

Wednesday will see children in  Swifts, Wrens, Robins, Wagtails, Linnets, Skylarks,  Owls and Kestrels performing.

Friday will see children in  Nightingales Puffins, Kingfishers, Jays, Doves, Sparrows, Magpies, Ospreys and Woodpeckers performing.

Both performances will start at 1.30pm. Only 2 adults per child please and may we ask that all buggies etc are left in the lobby as there will not be a lot of room in the hall.

Many of you that have visited school this term will know how busy the car park is at the moment. It woud be really appreciated if you could park at the Pavillion Playing fields and walk down to school

Boxes of tissues will be at the ready!
