Westhaven School is a maintained community special school for pupils aged between 4 and 18 years who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Built on an ethos of family support, personalised learning and commitment to the needs of the whole child, the last 50 years has seen it excel in new enterprises and we have recently expanded in both number and age range.
Our pupils have varying aptitudes and abilities; we are extremely proud of all their achievements and progress.
Our pupils have a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) including: Autism (ASC); Cognition and Learning needs; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). We seek to ensure that, by the time they leave us, our pupils emerge as self-confident individuals able to manage their own learning; equipped with the skills and competencies to successfully take the next steps in their lives.
We are a friendly, happy and caring school, providing a positive, inclusive and enriching educational experience for our young people. We view each of our pupils as unique and shape our provision to meet their individual needs and accelerate their progress in a variety of areas e.g. personal, social, academic and well-being. Our commitment to supporting the ‘whole’ child and their development is underpinned by our strong pastoral systems and our committed and trained staff.
At Westhaven we promote inclusion and equality and celebrate diversity.
Our mission statement is ‘Valued, Inspired, Prepared”.
