We cater for students with a range of special needs that include Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe learning Difficulties (SLD) and pupils with ASD and complex needs, these students will have a wide range of associated learning needs as well as a complex profile of additional and overlapping needs, including but not limited to; complex presentation of speech, language and communication needs, therapeutic requirements and a range of health challenges.
At Windmill Hill School, we acknowledge the uniqueness of all pupils. Developing awareness and understanding of our students is paramount, therefore we place great emphasis on training, CPD and working holistically with students, parents, carers and extended teams to represent the views of our school community, particularly those of our students.
We aim to equip all learners with confidence, skills, resilience, and high aspirations in order to lead happy, fulfilling lives in an ever-changing world.
