Special Education Needs

The Beacon School caters for children aged between 5 and 16 years of age who exhibit emotional and behavioral difficulties. Children with emotional and behavioural difficulties need a highly structured environment in order to make the maximum amount of progress. This is provided through the medium of Positive Behaviour Management Techniques. Verbal reinforcements and praise are very much in evidence. It is an essential part of the school’s work for staff to develop warm, caring relationships with the pupils. The school has a long record of successful practice both in terms of social and academic achievement. The school offers GCSE courses in English, English iterature, maths, science, design & technology, art & design and PE; CLAIT and Entry Level Certificate in ICT. The AQA Unit Award Scheme is offered in a wide range of citizenship, careers, social and curriculum areas. The school underwent an OFSTED inspection in November 2002. This was highly successful and the school was described as, “A good school with significant very good features”.
