Special Education Needs

Treetops is a day school for children and young people between the ages of three and 16 who experience moderate learning difficulties. The school, located in Grays, Essex, UK is a Thurrock Local Education Authority (LEA) school and in under local management. The school operates a special VB (verbal behaviour) nursery for children on the autistic spectrum and is the first state school in the UK to be adopting these teaching principles. From September 2004, Treetops operates on two sites. Its main campus at Dell Road, Grays and the second campus at South Ockendon. 'School should be a place where there is work but also laughter, a place where there is law but also grace, a place where there is justice but where there is also love...' Sir Alec Clegg 1974 We aspire to this statement. We acknowledge and value the unique contribution of each and every individual within our school community. It is almost impossible to express an ethos in words – it is more of an ‘ambience’ – or a way of being that needs to be experienced. Our school works on achievement, on what can be done. We work on the positive. We do not view our work as such but as a vocation or as an opportunity to make a difference. Each pupil is placed in an age or need appropriate group. Each group will have a teacher responsible for pastoral care. In addition the Headteacher and Deputy Head-teacher also take great pride in ensuring pastoral care is of the highest order. We will always endeavour to answer any worries you have on the same day that you make contact. One of the great qualities of our school is that we are small. We are therefore able to know each pupil really well and conversely they know us really well. Behaviour and discipline in school (or anywhere else) is all about relationships. Our aim is for pupils to accept our values and become part of a whole community, which instils a sense of pride in each other. There are many and varied extra-curricular activities. For younger pupils there are frequent visits and trips to make their learning as real as possible. We also run residential experience and variety club and other sponsored events. These are tremendous opportunities which all form a very valuable part of our whole school approach. We do have a school uniform which we feel helps to instil a sense of pride and community.
