The Team

Sandy Turner, our Executive Principal leads a team of nine teachers, three occupational therapists, six speech and language therapists and twenty seven support assistants.

We are a small school and have a comprehensive team to meet the diverse needs and well-being of our pupils. Therapy provision is at the core of our school and this is what enables the pupils to benefit from an integrated approach to learning. Our therapists work in close partnership with the teaching and support staff and parents.
