A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


Kea Downs Road

School Description

Three Bridges School is a very special place. Pupils who have struggled to find acceptance in other schools receive a warm welcome here. Parents and carers who have felt isolated and unsupported find friendly staff who want to understand their child. As one parent put it: ‘It’s amazing here. Staff continually make sure things work. If something isn’t working – they try something else. Life at home has improved massively.’ The inspirational headteacher is ambitious for the school. Her aim is that pupils will learn to understand their special educational needs and be very well prepared for their futures when the time comes to leave school. The staff team provide strong support for the headteacher. They share her commitment to helping all pupils to achieve their potential. This is a safe, happy school. Pupils know that every member of staff wants them to experience success. Behaviour in school is excellent. If a pupil becomes upset, highly skilled staff provide support to reduce their anxiety. Time is then spent working out how to stop the same thing happening again. There are strong relationships between staff and pupils. Pupils get on well with each other and share any concerns with staff so that bullying is not an issue in this school.
