What the school says...
Cromwell High School is a Special School catering for the needs of pupils experiencing severe or profound difficulties in their learning. Average class size is 9 pupils with a teacher, a qualified Special Support Assistant and a further Support Assistant. We seek to fully integrate a pupil's need to develop key skills for life, their care needs and their health needs, with inclusion in a broad and stimulating curriculum. We are co-located with Astley Sports College to eliminate the physical barriers to inclusion. We work to get the best mix of education from a Special School and access to mainstream opportunities for each individual child. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
As a special school everything we do is focused on Special Educational Needs. Care needs, health needs, communication needs, the need to develop key skills for life, the need for different ways to access the curriculum are all central to our purpose. We value each pupil as a complex human being with a complex identity. They may be disabled but they are so much more than that, and we value their entitlement to access, and be included in, the widest world possible. Above all we value their entitlement to achieve success in their own terms and the celebration of personal success is central to our Special Educational Needs policy. We offer accreditation appropriate for all pupils from the major national awarding bodies: OCR, AQA, ASDAN etc. A pupil's education is not simply about what happens in school and we are committed to a partnership with parents to support their child's achievement in whatever way is possible. We are developing ourselves as an extended school and have a vibrant, and continually expanding, extra curricular provision. We cater for pupils experiencing severe, profound or complex difficulties in their learning. Staff are trained in the TEACCH and PECS approaches to supporting pupils who need a very structured environment and visual communication system including pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and associated learning difficulties. In addition to their learning difficulties we cater for pupils with physical disabilities and requiring full personal care. Some pupils have experienced challenging behaviour in addition to learning difficulties. The school is a centre of excellence for addressing these needs; eliminating or minimising such incidents, and provides Team Teach behaviour management training to many other schools, colleges and social care environments in the local authority area.
