Special Education Needs

Forest Edge is a special school for primary aged pupils who have a wide range of complex learning difficulties. We have a very visual and hands-on curriculum to enable us to meet the needs of each child. Across the school, learners make good progress in literacy and numeracy because of very clear individual targets. Our pupils’ personal development and well being was graded as “outstanding” in the Ofsted report dated January 2006.
