About the School

The school is a complex mixed needs special secondary (age range 11 – 19) school situated in Camberwell, in the London Borough of Southwark. They have 136 pupils on roll. Every pupil has a statement of Special Educational Needs.

The School enable their pupils to gain the skills, confidence and opportunities needed to progress to employment, meaningful voluntary opportunities and training. The pupils tell them that they want to make a contribution to society. They are a central London school and expect the pupils to be active citizens.

The student’s education does not follow the national curriculum but is very much focused on personal development, physically and mentally. They all have personal goals and are constantly encouraged to push themselves and given tasks to stimulate their activity.

Their pupils have a range of needs, including:

* Complex medical needs
* Downs Syndrome
* Autistic Spectrum Disorder
* Speech, Language and Communication difficulties
* ADHD
* Physical disabilities

Key Stages 3 and 4:

In Key Stage 3 their pupils start the day with Literacy and Numeracy, usually taught by their form teacher. They teach subjects such as Social Communication and Lego therapy, which the child might not have encountered in primary school, as well as the full range of National curriculum subjects. All Key stage 3 pupils have regular swimming in addition to their PE lessons. In Key stage 4 pupils work towards a variety of accreditation's including Entry Level, Asdan and Functional Skills.

Key Stage 5

The Sixth form programme includes one day a week college link and for many pupils one day a week work experience placement. The focus of the sixth form is allowing the pupils to gain as much independence skills as possible. Travel training forms part of their programme for those pupils who are not independent travellers.

The school has a Pupil Development Centre where pupils spend time in activities of daily living, such as make beds, wash up and do the washing. They also have a Specialist dyslexia team who support pupils both in and out of class.

This is an incredibly rewarding role with the results apparent and in front of you every day as you see each child gradually grow and push themselves
