Special Education Needs

The education provided at Amwell View is available from the age of 2 years through to 19 years. We are very fortunate to see the majority of pupils develop through the opportunities made available to them, according to their individual needs. The school has many valuable resources established over the years to enable pupils to gain experience, knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. A multi-disciplinary approach is achieved with the provision of a physiotherapist, speech and language therapist, music therapist and school nurse. Additional advice is also available from the Advisory Teacher Team, Social Services, Occupational Therapist, Senior Medical Officer and Careers Service. Together we aim to give the best quality education and support for the pupils and their families who attend Amwell View. The age range (2-19 years) of the school means it is possible to plan a long-term programme suited to each pupil. This continuity is important yet at the same time the pupils experience calculated change as they progress from one class to another and meet different members of staff. Pupils are placed in the most appropriate class, which can cater for their own particular special needs giving due regard to the individual's age. Specialist provision has been made to cater for pupils with autism and severe language and communication difficulties. A number of classes are able to include non-ambulant pupils, however a separate class is well established to provide appropriate educational for a discrete group of pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) who have more complex needs. The staffing ratio in each class varies and takes into account the individual needs of each pupil in the class. Progression from class to class is not dependent upon chronological age but account is taken of developmental age, physical needs, and the pupil's abilities.
