Welcome to The Livity School
I am Carol Argent , Head Teacher.
The Livity School is a primary school for children with severe learning difficulties, PMLD, ASD and complex medical needs. The school building is purpose built to meet the needs of all the pupils with special educational needs and disabilities(SEND).
‘Livity’ is a new word which essentially means ‘Living Life Positively'. The school aims to help all pupils to build self-esteem and confidence thus promoting their maximum achievement. This will enable them to gain the skills necessary to learn and to develop their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.
We believe that:
- All children have a right to education
