There are 81 pupils on our school roll. All our pupils are admitted with a Statement of their Educational Needs.
The majority of our pupils have severe or complex learning difficulties and many have a diagnosis of Autism. This means that they will need a high level of support to learn.
Some of our pupils will need extra support to improve their communication skills; we use signs and symbols to supplement the spoken word.
We have a part-time school nurse on site who co-ordinates the pupils’ health needs.
Where do our pupils live?
Most of our pupils live in Alfreton, Matlock, Belper, Ashbourne and Ripley … though some are further afield.
As long as your child can be a day pupil, and travel to our school – and there is not a more suitable school that is closer – the local authority will consider the placement.
