Further Education Prospectus

The Heart of the Forest Community Special School is a state funded co-educational, all phase school catering exclusively for children and young people who have special needs (SEN).  This article is written with both present and future parents in mind, and I hope that it will give you a flavour of the exciting provision available at Heart of the Forest Community Special School.

The staff and governors are strongly committed to making a high quality specialist provision for children and young people with severe, profound and multiple or complex learning difficulties. The needs and entitlement of the individual are at the heart of all school activities and policies.

We hope the special nature of Heart of the Forest Community Special School is readily apparent in the child friendly, but purposeful, ethos of the school.

"Relationships are good. Staff are caring. Students are comfortable and happy. Lessons are planned and conducted in a positive atmosphere".    Ofsted
