What the school says...

We have just completed an exciting period of expansion to 3 forms of entry, including having a new wing built onto the school. The new building enables us to have extra specialist facilities such as a purpose built music room, a second ICT suite, a cookery room and an After School Club area.

At Wimbledon Chase we have an additionally resourced provision for pupils with speech, language and communication disorders. The Key Stage 1 unit is called The Ark and the Key Stage 2 Unit is called The Study. Both provide specialist teaching for up to 18 pupils from nursery to Year 6. The children attend The Ark and Study in the mornings, where they receive their literacy and numeracy lessons from a special needs teacher and 3 learning support assistants. They also receive regular speech & language therapy and occupational therapy. For all other lessons, they return to their normal classes with their learning support assistants. Staff are trained in a variety of techniques including: Makaton, Social Skills, SEAL small group work training, Speech & Language Therapy, Play therapy, Drama therapy, etc. We pride ourselves on being a fully inclusive school. All children have equal access to the wider curriculum as well as participating in school trips, theatre workshops and sports activities. 09-09
