Thank the school

Special Education Needs

Dame Hannah Rogers School is a Non-Maintained Residential Special School and Further Education Department. We meet the needs of students with physical difficulties and associated learning difficulties (from moderate to profound) in addition many have sensory impairments usually associated with their disabilities. Many of our students have complex physical or medical problems. We are greatly experienced in working with young people who have communication difficulties. Our current age range is from 5-19 years. We meet those needs by providing a multi-disciplinary team approach alongside a waking hour curriculum. Students within the school (5-16 years) have access to a broad and balanced inclusive curriculum, which is specifically matched to individual needs. We follow the National Curriculum and offer a range of accredited courses at Key Stage 4 and above. The high staff to student ratio, which includes 24 hour nursing cover, ensures that all students have access to a high standard of support for all aspects of their school/residential experience. Standards of care are very high and the school has had excellent inspection results from the Commission for Social Care Inspection and Ofsted. Within our Further Education Department (16-19 years) we offer Life Skills alongside basic educational skills and the students are housed in specially adapted bungalows in order to maximise their independence skills. A range of therapies is provided including Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy,Music Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Rebound Therapy and Riding for the Disabled.Therapy. Dame Hannah Rogers School has been included on the OFSTED Outstanding Providers List having received three outstanding inspection reports. We have an exceptional learning environment.
