What the school says...

The Milestone is a Leading Edge school and is one of the biggest of its type in the country. We offer many specialisms, including curriculum adaptation for children with special educational needs, Conductive Education, provisions for Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Social Use of Language Programme.

The school offers the full National Curriculum as a basis for curriculum development, and adds to this a wide range of additional activities for personal and social growth.

Links with mainstream schools are developed through joint projects in certain subjects across the key stages. Our integration programme is important in ensuring that children who are transferring to mainstream are supported throughout the transition.

By virtue of its distinctive blend of expertise, facilities and resources, The Milestone School plays a significant role in the network of services the Education Authority provides for meeting the special educational needs of pupils in Gloucestershire. The school provides advice and support for teachers of pupils with physical and learning disabilities in mainstream school.
