About the school

A number of visually impaired pupils have been successfully integrated from the adjacent Shawgrove special school for the visually impaired which is closing down.

Quotes from the Ofsted Report

This is a school where most pupils achieve well.

Pupils who are visually impaired are welcomed into the school and provided with the same opportunities as other pupils.

The sensory garden, an impressive feature shared with the neighbouring school for visually impaired pupils, came through the dedication and hard work of parents, working together with pupils, staff and other interested parties.
