“All pupils learn life skills and communication in a way that prepares them for future independence.” (Manor School OFSTED report 2020)

“The speech and language therapists (SaLT), occupational therapists and inclusion team all work in unison with the teaching staff. Together they plan each pupil’s targets and support plans across these domains.” (The Avenue School OFSTED report 2023)
