The school will be closed as of 3.35pm on Friday 20th March 2020.Accept
We have made the very difficult decision to close the school due to the number of staff and pupils self-isolating. This is impacting on our ability to run the school effectively.
These are relevant to children across the early years and school age range including those with special educational needs and disabilities.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced. It is aligned to the national curriculum for both primary and secondary aged pupils but it is also carefully designed to meet the individual needs of our pupils. Our curriculum is embedded into an autistic-friendly environment, and taught by staff with a profound understanding and empathy for the challenges facing many of our pupils.
