What the school says...
We are a co-educational specialist school for children aged 5-11 years which opened in January 2011. We cater for pupils with specialist needs (eg. specific learning difficulties) and for children who require extra nurturing and support.
We received an outstanding OFSTED Inspection in March 2014. See the quotes page of our website to find out more.
We value every child as an individual and cater for personal learning styles in our teaching. Our curriculum is a creative, multi sensory, cross curricular programme which includes teaching social, communication and language needs including English as an Additional Language (EAL), emotional intelligence, motor skills and citizenship skills as well as delivering every area of the National Curriculum including swimming and sport.
Classes are small (average of eight) and many lessons make use of our beautiful grounds. We work closely with parents to encourage pupils to develop their strengths whilst working towards challenging but achievable targets in their areas of need. ...Read more
