LEARNING TOGETHER FOR PERSONAL SUCCESS
Alfreton Park is a local Authority funded generic special school.
We take pupils from 2 to 19 years of age who have a range of learning difficulties for severe to profound. Additionally, about half of our pupils are on the autistic spectrum.
Our curriculum is focused on meeting the individual learning needs of our pupils and ensuring that they are ready for the next stage in their life. We believe that our pupils learn best when the activities are exciting, varied and person centered; taking into consideration individual strengths, interests and barriers to learning.
All of our pupils’ needs must be met if they are to learn and we focus on ensuring that pupils are ready to learn; physically and emotionally.
Supporting the families of our pupils is central to ensuring that our pupils develop effectively and our family support worker is a vital part of our school team. Working with other agencies to ensure that pupils health and social care needs are met is important part of the support we provide.
Our ethos is that we are all here to learn together in a supportive environment. Pupils, staff and all stakeholders are encouraged to learn together to develop to our maximum potential.

There are 10 Derbyshire County Council special schools and we are aiming to work together more closely to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
9 of the schools have recently formed a soft federation to facilitate greater collaboration.
The working closely together will ensure that we provide consistency cross the county and work together in providing professional development opportunities for staff, moderation of assessment and in areas such as procurement.
