Thank the school

Special Education Needs

All pupils at Greenacre have a Statement of Special Educational Needs. Their specific needs identified in their Statements are met through Individual Education Plans (IEPs), plans that include physical needs plans, personal care plans, medical care plans and behaviour modification plans as appropriate. The school recognises that all pupils are entitled to follow and benefit from the National Curriculum. Staff plan appropriate curriculum opportunities that provide exciting and stimulating learning experiences at the appropriate level for all pupils. Greenacre School is well resourced with specialist equipment, including computers, electronic aids and interactive technology. There are specialist areas including a nursing station, hydrotherapy pool, light and sound rooms, soft play room, ICT suite, as well as food technology and design and technology rooms. A specialist music room and drama studio complete a very exciting range of facilities. There is also a room designated for parents use. There is a school house on Victoria Road that is used as a life skills training base for older students. The school also has access to a specially resourced house on Myrtle Street. This facility is completely accessible to all wheelchair users and provides a further invaluable life-skills teaching base.
