  • All children have a right to integration
  • All children have a right to be acknowledged and treated with respect

  • Pupils with Complex Medical Needs

As well as Severe Cognition and Learning Difficulties, many pupils have Additional Disabilities including:-

  • Sensory Impairments
  • Autism / Communication and Interaction Difficulties
  • Physical Disabilities
  • Epilepsy
  • Other Medical Needs
  • Any Associated Behavioural needs are addressed by the school in a positive way

Pupils are grouped in classes according to age and within the Foundation Stage/Key Stages 1 and 2 of the National Curriculum. Each class has a teacher and teaching assistants. The school day for the children is from 8.55am until 3.30pm.
