Special Education Needs
Garratt Park School is a special school for students with a wide range of Special Educational Needs. The school is located in the Inner London Borough of Wandsworth and takes students from all over the Borough, as well as neighbouring boroughs. Garratt Park School currently caters for 145 students from a wide range of economic and social backgrounds. Our current students all have statements of Special Educational Needs that name mild/moderate learning difficulties as the major need. Examples of the types of Special Educational Needs and additional needs that are experienced by our current students include Language and Communication difficulties and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Garratt Park School aims to enable young people to achieve their fullest potential through a broad and balanced curriculum. All members of the school have the right to experience success within a caring community, which recognises their efforts and celebrates their achievements. Garratt Park School aims to enable its students to foster a caring, respectful attitude to others; become independent and socially competent adults; earn their living, gain job satisfaction, enjoy their learning and be eager to continue learning; take pride in themselves; develop self-confidence, an ability to communicate and acquire the skills necessary in life; be able to play a positive role in today’s society and achieve their fullest potential. The school has a base for students who have Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). In addition to this, there are a number of students with ASD within the main school. Students attached to the base are integrated into the main school for some aspects of the curriculum, as well as social integration. The school’s Year 12/13 curriculum reflects the recommendations of the Learning Skills Council and has well-established links with the local Further Education College and employers. These opportunities for students reflect our understanding of personalised learning and our commitment to promoting it.
