Following from the prime ministers announcement, as maintained special schools we would like to confirm that our letter dated this morning still stands including the new arrangements that have been made today. This is due, as already explained, to staffing levels and the need to review provision risk assessment. Following this announcement we will be working closely with the local authority and update you as soon as possible.

At Southall we place the needs of our students at the heart of all we do.
We provide a curriculum which is both aspirational and challenging for our students who have a range of moderate and complex needs.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure students have opportunities to apply their knowledge and use skills in practical ways that will enhance their enjoyment and support vital life and work skills. The aim is to ensure successful and supported transition to young adulthood. Wrapped around our academic curriculum framework is a wide range of enrichment opportunities including; sporting activities, clubs, residentials and our very own Radio Station.
Our relationships with parents are fundamental to the successes of our students.
We work in genuine partnership; understanding the difficulties parents face with a child with additional needs and working with them to remove barriers to success and enjoyment. Staff are always happy to advise and support families and there are specialist areas within the school with expertise in specific needs.
We work with others to ensure our students’ needs are met.
Close links have been established with therapy services, educational providers, businesses, performing arts groups, sports teams and others so that we can support each student in areas of difficulty and build on and encourage their talents and strengths.
