School Description

The Pace Centre is an independent day special school for pupils aged between five and 14 years. It opened in 1997 and is located in a residential area of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. The youngest pupils are based at The Pace Early Years Centre in Stoke Mandeville, near Aylesbury. The school was last inspected in October 2012. At this time, the school was judged to be outstanding. All of the pupils have statements of special educational needs, or education, health and care plans. All pupils have sensory motor disorders such as cerebral palsy. Pupils also Inspection report: The Pace Centre, 29 November–1 December 2016 Page 8 of 11 have communication difficulties and some have medical needs. Eleven local authorities fund pupils’ placements at the school. The school does not use any alternative provision. Approximately one third of the pupils come from homes where English is an additional language. The school has a ‘positive belief in every child’s ability to learn’ and aims to ‘ensure that they receive an education for life which enables them to be as active and independent as possible and to achieve their potential for a fulfilled life’. The Pace Centre approach is transdisciplinary. A team of staff collaborate to meet the individual needs of each pupil. Each class team includes teachers, conductive education experts known as conductors, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and classroom assistants. The Pace Charity has an early years centre, which provides a Nursery class for children aged three and four years. This is registered and inspected separately. The Pace Infant and Parent Service (PIPS) provides programmes to meet the specific needs of babies and young children with developmental delays or disabilities. The charity works with a local maintained special school, Heritage House School to provide additional provision for sixth form students.
