Meadow Wood School offers a broad and balanced, creative curriculum for primary aged pupils with physical and neurological impairments, some who are linguistically and academically able while others may have developmental delay and may be working below the National Curriculum expectations.


We aim to promote independence, friendships, security, and lifelong skills for learning through developing physical and intellectual capabilities. Our learning environment is bright, welcoming, calm, interactive and warm. It is equipped with specialist learning areas adapted to the needs of the pupils that contribute to the range of flexible teaching approaches. Our children may require the use of alternative or augmentative approaches to support their communication as well as the use of assisted technology in order to access the curriculum.  We are committed to supporting a range of needs including those with sensory impairments and complex medical needs, such as epilepsy.


As a school we understand that positive behaviour approaches are fundamental to supporting pupils and the teaching of good behaviours is made explicit through all school activities and experiences. We ensure a continuity of care for the pupils by working collaboratively with families to develop behaviours for learning. Narrowing the gap between pupils’ potential and achievement is central to the work of the school and this is evaluated rigorously through a planned cycle of review.
