Special Education Needs
Phoenix, a school in Tower Hamlets, is a unique resource for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs; including language and communication difficulties; severe learning difficulties; and those on the autistic spectrum. The school occupies a pleasant site set back from the Bow Road in its own grounds. The area is well served by public transport and has easy access to underground stations on the District and Central lines. Bow Church station for the Docklands Light Railway is close by and buses stop almost outside the school gates. Phoenix School has a bright future and will continue to go from strength to strength as we plan to provide the very best environment for pupils at all times. It is a developing and growing school with a professional staff working alongside a multidisciplinary team from education, health and social services. There are many new and exciting developments taking place at Phoenix, building upon well-established practices. The changing roll and curriculum requirements have enabled us to press for new accommodation for classes and specialist teaching areas, these have been supported by Tower Hamlets LA and the DCSF. As a result, the school has improved many of its facilities and will continue to develop to its full potential. We are a caring, well ordered school and mutual respect between staff and pupils is encouraged. We believe it is important that pupils build upon their achievements and reach their full potential. To this end, we expect children to take advantage of the opportunities offered; and to develop high standards of tolerance, care and respect for others. To facilitate this all pupils follow the National Curriculum, which is presented in a rich and stimulating way but individually tailored, reflecting the best of current practice. Additionally community and employment based activities, provide an environment which both supports the pupils' learning and ensures a successful transition from school to adult life. The school’s website designed for parents, pupils and teachers; will also be useful for Headteachers, Inspectors, Administrators, Educational Psychologists, Careers Officers and Social Workers, who may be considering placing children at Phoenix. The school is committed to involving parents in regular consultation, and building a real partnership between home and school.
