Special Education Needs
Dawn House School is committed to the highest quality education, therapy and care for day or residential pupils with a communication disability. Children and young people work towards external accreditation (GCSE, CoA, Youth Award Scheme), national awards for academic, sporting and personal achievements while developing their communication skills and growing in confidence and experience. The Ofsted inspection report commented: ‘A very effective school, where teaching and learning are very good. Pupils make very impressive progress in developing their speech, language and communication skills, as well as their personal and social development. Pupils demonstrate outstanding attitudes, behaviour and social skills, which are the result of highly positive and thoughtfully structured support that always seeks to encourage independence.’ Dawn House School's FE provision, in partnership with West Nottinghamshire Further Education College, enables students aged 16 to 19 to access mainstream college opportunities whilst receiving specialist support. Please note: the school will cater for mild emotional and behavioural difficulties where this emanates from the communication difficulty. School has experience of other genetic disorders eg Worster Drout which have associated communication difficulties.
