All pupils have a significant learning difficulty coupled with additional disabilities including physical disability, sensory impairment, ADHD, attachment disorder, autistic spectrum disorders and challenging behaviour. A large proportion of the pupils are on the autistic spectrum and require specialist techniques and strategies in order to minimise the impact of their barriers to learning.
