Special Education Needs

Willow Dene is a large primary special school that aims to provide high quality education for children with a wide range of learning disabilities: moderate, severe, profound and multiple learning disabilities, complex medical needs, physical disabilities and children on the autistic spectrum. In addition to the direct provision for children, including close multi-professional working with health professionals (SaLT; physiotherapy, OT, music therapy, school nursing service etc), the school has 4 Outreach services - Visual Impairment Service, ASD Outreach Service, the Specific Learning Difficulties Service and the SENCo Project who work to support children with moderate to severe learning difficulties in mainstream schools. All of the outreach projects have close working links with the school as well as supporting children with learning difficulties in mainstream schools and providing training for teachers, support staff and parents. The school had a very successful OFSTED inspection in May 2007.
