Our Mission

Our primary aim is to provide a safe and secure school environment that encourages individuality, confidence and self-esteem. We aim to optimise Quality of Life for our pupils by developing, nurturing and promoting independence. Our service model is Positive Behavioural Support, which directs us to focus on improving quality of life, thus rendering challenging behaviour less necessary.
