A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


Canford Lane

School Description

Staff have high expectations of pupils. Many pupils join the school after long periods out of education or with previous negative school experiences. Leaders have created strong systems to support successful transition to school life. Pupils and staff forge positive relationships over time. As a result, the vast majority of pupils attend very well and recognise the positive impact that attending Grace Garden is making. Pupils gain confidence and develop both personally and academically. Pupils enjoy the rhythm of the day, for example in feeding the animals and collecting eggs on arrival. The school places a strong focus on using the land to make, do and create. Pupils grow and harvest the food they eat. Pupils learn to have pride in their many achievements. Most pupils learn a lot of new knowledge and skills quickly. They value the fact that staff listen and help, including when sorting out any disagreements. Pupils develop their self-esteem, emotional regulation and social skills well. Pupils learn about equality and the importance of being independent. Over time, pupils cooperate and work in pairs or small teams. They also get out in the community, for example through planned walks and visiting local art galleries.
