Special Education Needs
The Good Schools Guide write: The Forest Schools caters for a variety of special needs including moderate and severe learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders, physical difficulties and language and communication disorders. All pupils have statements of special educational needs and are referred via North Yorkshire LEA. The school works closely with other schools in Knaresborough to offer mainstream inclusion opportunities for the children. Inclusion is carefully thought through and planned for. There is a purpose built nursery and some specialist accommodation including facilities for art, DT, science, food technology and ICT. The school employs a part-time speech and language therapist and has access to local health care trust staff including a physio and occupational therapist. School were proud recipients of the DfES School Achievement Award for the high standards attained in 2002 and 2003.
