Information about the School
We are a successful, purpose built, mixed special school providing for children and young people between the ages of 3 – 19 with severe and complex learning difficulties.
With the exception of those pupils occasionally admitted in the Foundation Stage on an assessment basis all pupils have a statement of special educational need, falling principally into the categories of severe and complex or profound and multiple. A smaller number of students have moderate learning difficulties and a significant number have an additional diagnosis of autism.
The school experiences a variable pattern of referrals and admissions and whilst it is usual for children to be admitted at the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 age there are a significant number of children that are admitted at other ages. Admissions also take place regularly throughout the school year.
Although the catchment area for the school extends beyond the geographical boundaries of Basildon the vast majority of pupils live in the local area.
In January 2009 the school moved to new purpose built premises, which were further extended in September 2011 to provide even more specialist spaces. The school now has facilities that are second to none within the UK and we are regularly visited or consulted on matters of special school design.
Our vision is to continue developing and improving the quality of provision available to our students and our Academy Council, parents and staff are enthusiastic and committed to the proposed plans. We believe that our proposals will enhance the education and quality of life for the children and young people currently in the school and lead to better outcomes for them in adult life.
Our most recent successful Ofsted inspection recognised that we are an Outstanding school, commenting 'The quality of education for pupils with profound and multiple special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is excellent. Pupils thrive in this high-quality learning environment. '
