We are a foundation school, offering education for 85 children between the ages of 2 and 19 years with complex physical and sensory difficulties. Many pupils also have medical needs and other difficulties that may affect their learning. Our school is a resource for the whole of the South West peninsula; our pupils come from Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall to learn. Children’s health is supported by our Nursing team and a range of staff from the NHS, Childrens’ Integrated Disability Team, Livewell South West and staff from neighbouring authorities. Our staff work closely with therapists to get the best outcome for individual pupils.
We provide a range of opportunities for very young children and their parents or carers to come into the school, use the facilities and share their experiences with other people. We offer an inclusive service to our families; providing support for more than a child’s learning and development. We guide families through various support assessment processes. Our Family Team offers help in a variety of ways; improving communication, guiding families to services, support and opportunities.
Our assessment nursery caters for children from the age of two, to attend sessions to develop their skills, some in readiness for inclusion and possible mainstream education. Our teaching provision is dynamic and all pupils have individual learning programmes which is based upon their Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) or their Statement of Special Educational Needs.
We promote high quality practice in supporting those with physical difficulties in schools across Plymouth through our successful Outreach Team.
Our commitment to having high expectations for every child, an enabling curriculum and a strong emphasis on independence and self-actualisation, ensures our pupils leave school not only with a range of qualifications but also the skills for a fulfilling life.
