School Description

Headlands School is an independent special school, situated in a residential area of Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan. It is part of the Action for Children charity. The school provides term time residential and day placements for pupils aged 7 to 19 years with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). The school currently educates 68 pupils from key stage 2 to post-16. Nearly all pupils come from Welsh local authorities, with a very few from English local authorities. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs (SEN) and 20 pupils have looked-after child (LAC) status. The school’s aim is to develop young people’s wellbeing and independence through an individual approach to education and care. The Principal has been in post since 2009. The last full inspection by Estyn was in October 2012.
