Vision and Values

We are an enthusiastic and professional staff team who keep the progress and development of children at the centre of our thinking. We believe strongly in creating new and exciting opportunities and making sure that learning is fun, engaging and relevant. Parents understand they are a vital part of the team and are very positive and supportive.


As we cater for children of all ages and abilities we are like many different schools housed under one roof!   All of our pupils have physical disabilities or complex medical conditions. In addition many pupils have learning, communication and sensory needs. We receive support from other professionals who provide speech and language therapy and physiotherapy.


We value our role as part of a wider professional community for children and young people with special educational needs. We are proud that we are designated as a Teaching School and we hope to use this as a springboard to further develop our outward facing work as a leading provider of professional development both in Leicester and in a wider national and international arena.
