What we do

Battledown is a Special School and part of the SAND Academy Trust providing specialist assessment of children between the ages of 2 to 11 and covering the whole range of additional needs.

 

These include:

  • Communication and Social Interaction Difficulties
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Speech and Language Delay/Disorder
  • Developmental Delay
  • Physical, Medical difficulties and Sensory Impairment
  • Emotional and Behaviour Difficulties

Battledown is a ‘learning community’ where all are involved in a continuous improvement and enrichment. We believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the notion that learning should be rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching we hope to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives. At Battledown we aim to remove obstacles and enable learning for all our pupils.

Throughout your child’s learning journey, opportunities for informal discussion about their progress will be available, with prior arrangement with the class teacher.  The class teacher and the Family Worker will visit you and your child at home within the first 6 weeks to give you information on how they have settled in. There will be regular meetings in line with your child’s EHCP.
