Working in Partnership with the Governors

The governors of a school carry real responsibility for how the school runs. Governors are accountable in partnership with the Headteacher, for the School Aims, the quality of teaching and learning, support to pupils, the curriculum, management of the school budget, school development, staff appointments, the premises and many other related aspects that ensure that the school is successful and well-managed.

If you wish to know more about the work of the governing body, our Chair of Governors is always pleased to be contacted. You can do this through the school office.

School Rules and Discipline

Our aim is always to recognise and celebrate appropriate and desirable behaviour and every achievement that is special to the individual.

The school benefits from the services of a number of visiting professionals.

These specialists include Speech Therapists, Physiotherapists, Educational Psychologists, Medical Personnel and Educational Social Workers.

Alternative Methods of Communication

The Makaton signing and symbol vocabulary is used in addition to speech, as an aid to communication.

All staff and pupils learn the system to help those students who have limited or no speech.
