Cavendish View School
We provide a nurturing and stimulating education for pupils with special education needs (S.E.N), moderate learning difficulties (M.L.D.) or social, emotional and mental health difficulties. (S.E.M.H.) between the ages of 5 and 11 years.
• We will prepare our pupils for taking their place in an ever-changing world by helping them to become confident, independent, self-reliant lifelong learners.
• We care about our pupils and want them to feel safe and supported. We will ensure our school is friendly, welcoming, active, vibrant and inclusive.
• We want our children to be happy, enthusiastic, motivated and well behaved. We will inspire them to be curious, determined and reflective.
• Our staff are professional, experienced and supportive. They will always encourage our children to participate fully, learn through their mistakes and always try to do their best.
• We will continue developing the curriculum, so it is creative, challenging, and relevant. We will develop our children’s critical thinking skills so that they can work using their own initiative.
• We will teach our children to be open-minded, tolerant of other people’s differences, responsible, respectful and resilient.
• Our school is a partnership and we will continue to build our relationships, bringing together teachers, pupils, parents and our governing body with shared goals and aspirations.
• We are an integral part of our local community with close relationships with other schools and agencies. Our goal is to give the children at Cavendish View School a window on the wider world.
All our children have an Education, Health and Care Plan. We strive to provide a specific, bespoke curriculum to meet each pupil’s individual needs through careful setting of pupil targeted support/intervention, daily structure/routine and through detailed assessment procedures. Each pupil has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), reviewed half termly, which highlights their specific objectives to support progress and achievement.
We have a multi-disciplinary team consisting of teachers, family liaison officer, teaching assistants, a speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, mental health practitioner and educational psychologist.
Pupils at Cavendish View School will either be unable to maintain a place in a mainstream school or be thought to be able to benefit from a stable period in a small and supportive school environment. We provide a nurturing and stimulating education for pupils with special education needs (S.E.N), moderate learning difficulties (M.L.D.) or social, emotional and mental health difficulties. (S.E.M.H.) between the ages of 5 and 11 years.
When a placement is requested, a copy of the child/young person’s EHC Plan and/or other relevant documents, such as previous school reports, Individual Education Programme (I.E.P) etc. will be needed. This is in order to ascertain the suitability of the placement and to set up an education programme appropriate to the child/young person’s needs. A planning meeting will then be held to determine if the placement is appropriate to the child’s needs. Initial enquiries and informal visits are always welcome, but referrals will come to us directly from the pupil’s local authority.
As part of the pre-admission process a non-prejudicial visit to the school is arranged. Where it is felt to be of benefit, we can also arrange a home visit prior to the school visit, to support the pupil.
Following admission to the school there will be an assessment period, followed by a post-admission review meeting after 10 to 12 weeks. This meeting will provide a progress update and an opportunity for any additional support needs identified during the assessment to be discussed.
Referrals can be made throughout the academic year.
If you wish to discuss making a referral please contact Lyndsey Murphy, School Principal.
The school’s Admissions Policy is available on request.
