Our experienced Head teacher and her supportive senior

We are a two-form entry school in the South Norwood area of Croydon,
with an 'Enhanced Learning Provision' in the heart of a vibrant community. We
have recently been graded ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted. More importantly, we have amazing
children and a large team of staff who work hard to ensure that everyone learns
to succeed. As an integral part of our community, South Norwood Primary School
is dedicated to providing an inspiring and inclusive curriculum.
At South Norwood Primary School we have an MLD ELP for children with
Mild Learning Difficulties. Croydon special schools and enhanced learning
provisions offer appropriate placements for children and young people with the
most significant needs, who require a curriculum which is wrapped around them
so that they can engage in learning.
Special School and ELPs form part of Croydon’s continuum of provision
and services which The Council makes for children and young people with SEND.
They offer a variety of provision through their different designations and
distinctive areas of expertise. The ELP curriculum is topic based and is a
blend of EYFS/KS1 learning, social communication skills, listening, speaking
and attention. There is also a focus on sensory needs, behaviour and play. The
children all have individual packages of support according to their own
particular needs. Our staff make their assessments and tailor their learning
