We are a nursery to 19 Special School Academy in the north west corner of Derbyshire. We cater for children and young adults with a whole range of needs, particularly those with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), communication difficulties, and those with extremely challenging behaviour linked to their associated learning difficulties. We have a high staff to pupil ratio due to the specific needs of our pupils and also have on-site nurse, physiotherapist and speech and language therapists to provide specialist services.
Most pupils at Peak work outside the National Curriculum and we are proud to offer an individualised curriculum which is built around our four key areas:
Physical and Movement
Emotional and Expressive Arts
Accessing the World and Communication
Knowledge and Know-how
We are located in a beautiful, rural environment in the village of Chinley, where we make full use of the local amenities and make a point of filling our curriculum with outdoor activities.
We also have a number of specialist on-site facilities and services:
Sensory rooms and Sensory Garden
Fully equipped kitchen / catering learning environment for our post-16 pupils
On site nurse, visiting Physiotherapist and Speech and Language therapist.
Our location in north west Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District, means we are also accessible for pupils who may live in Cheshire, Stockport, Tameside (Greater Manchester) and also Sheffield.
We are currently Ofsted rated ‘Good’ – with outstanding for Behaviour and Welfare – and we are working hard to ensure we achieve outstanding results in our next inspection.
