How to find a suitable school
Please find below a link to the Government site called ‘Get information about schools’.
This site will provide you with information about all types of schools locally. It allows you to search for different types of schools by applying different filters or using your postcode.
There are two primary special schools and one secondary special school for children with complex learning difficulties.
There are also several specialist provisions sited within mainstream schools, offering access to specialist teaching and learning approaches and specialist equipment. These include provisions for children with visual and hearing impairments, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders.
Each area also has a specialist provision for primary aged children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, managed through the area partnership.
