Special Education Needs
The Loyne School caters for pupils aged 2-19 with a range of learning difficulties. Pupils are grouped in small classes by age and there are high staffing ratios. For pupils on the autistic continuum particular attention is paid to their learning needs with emphasis placed on visual timetables, TEACCH style teaching and assistance with social skills. Pupils with more profound learning difficulties benefit from a sensory curriculum. Particular attention is paid to communication and this is a key focus in all our work. All pupils have a regular opportunity for inclusive learning with their peer groups from mainstream settings. The school is accessible for pupils with physical difficulties. In 2004 we were identified in HMCI report as an outstanding school. Our recent OFSTED inspection opens with: 'The Loyne is a stunning school. It gives excellent value for money and is outstandingly successful in changing pupils’ lives for the better. Excellent leadership, management and governance have brought about improvements across the board since the previous inspection and put the school in an enviable position to maintain its place at the forefront of education and care, not just locally, but also nationally.'
