Special Education Needs

We contacted the school and they didn't want to make a statement. However, The Good Schools Guide writes: Melland High is a community special school catering for pupils mainly with severe learning difficulties. In addition, a number of pupils have more profound learning difficulties, including some with challenging behaviour. The school was inspected by OFSTED in 2004. They received a glowing report beginning: 'Melland High School is outstandingly effective. It is an oasis of excellence.' Adding: 'The school’s progress in improving pupils’ achievement has been outstanding since the last inspection.' Melland High holds a number of awards including Healthy Schools and Investors in People. The school, a beacon for inclusive learning, has been granted specialist school status, from September 06 with the curriculum specialism of cognition and learning. There are plans for the school to move to a new campus with Cedar Mount High School through the Building Schools for the Future campaign.
