Our Vibrant Learning Community Includes And Values Everyone – Inspiring ALL to Succeed

Broadfield Specialist School is a provision for students with generic learning difficulties aged 11-19.  All students on roll, currently 139, have an EHCP, Education, Health and Care Plan, or a Statement of Special Educational Needs. The school is organised into 16 classes within three departments, Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

In each Key Stage there is a class for students with more complex needs, who follow a sensory curriculum. Some classes have a more specialised and highly structured environment to meet the needs of our students with ASD. We have a policy for teaching students with ASD and apply specialist approaches and interventions consistently throughout school. We have an increasing number of high functioning ASD students. The curriculum is responsive to their needs and personalised to engage, motivate and challenge their learning. All class groups are taught by some subject specialist teachers.
