Derbyshire Local Offer

National Autism Society

The school is keen to support children and families who may be affected by autism.  We have close links with Holbrook Centre for Autism and all staff at the school have received recent training.  We have an assembly planned during 'Schools' Autism Awareness Week' (14-18th March) and classes are planning to do additional lessons this week.

Cerebral Palsy

The school has good facilities to help support children with mobility challenges.  We want all our children to celebrate the fact that we are all different and help each other around the school.

Derby Paralympion Leon Taylor has supported the school over the past few years. 




We have staff who have up to date diabetes training to support children with the condition.
