Special Education Needs
Priory School is a Croydon Council Community School for pupils aged 12-19 who have severe learning difficulties and profound and multiple difficulties. The school is currently fully subscribed and priority for places is given to Croydon residents. The school has gained a number of awards including Artsmark Gold, Sportsmark and The Investors in People Award. Priory School aims to improve the students’ functional communication at all levels. Language development is considered important across the whole curriculum and additional systems such as Makaton signing and symbols are used alongside technological aids according to individual need. In the lower school, there are selective groupings for certain subjects: English, maths and sex and relationship education. The sixth form has a curriculum which is based on life skills. The school offers the pupils the opportunity to complete the ASDAN Award at three levels: Transition Challenge, Bronze Award and Towards Independence. All pupils participate in the full range of sporting activities. There are weekly visits from a number of specialised professionals such as aromatherapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. Priory School aims to have the whole school work together as a community. For example, there are “Leisure Groups” on a Friday afternoon; the pupils can choose the activity they wish to take part in. The school runs an Arts Week in the summer, has links with a variety of different sports organizations and runs a number of other activities such as a Two Day Health Spa.
