School Description

Ysgol Crug Glas is a special school for pupils with multiple or severe and complex learning difficulties in the City and County of Swansea. Many have associated communication, behavioural or sensory difficulties, and a significant number have very specific health-care requirements. The school has 47 pupils on roll aged from 3 to 19 years. Most pupils come from the Swansea area and a few come from other local authorities. Each pupil has statement of special educational needs (SEN). Just over a fifth of pupils are entitled to free school meals. Many pupils in school have ‘looked-after child’ (LAC) status because they receive respite residential provision during the year. There are seven LAC pupils in foster or shared care and three pupils from minority ethnic groups. There is one pupil from a Welsh-speaking home. The school aims to provide a very broad curriculum based on sensory-based activities which integrate learning with therapy and a high quality of care. The school employs its own school nurses and a music therapist. The school has a hydrotherapy pool, dark room, white room and soft play room as well as a rebound therapy facility. The facilities are also used by pupils with special educational needs who are educated in mainstream schools throughout the City and County of Swansea. Ysgol Crug Glas employs an outreach teacher who provides support, advice, training and a resource-lending service to staff working with pupils with SEN in mainstream schools. The school aims to be a strong, vibrant and happy community which: • puts the needs of the pupils first so that they reach their individual potential; • provides enjoyable and challenging learning experiences to prepare pupils for life; • encourages pupils to communicate in an effective and acceptable way; • works with local partners to provide a high quality education for pupils with special educational needs; and • develops its staff. The school has links with Swansea Metropolitan University to provide a specialist Graduate Diploma course for teachers.
