Description

Pebble Brook School is a school for young people with a range of learning and additional disabilities.  We are a diverse population that forms one positive and progressive community. 

We also have a boarding facility where pupils can extend their learning through an extended curriculum.  Boarding is open Monday to Thursday evenings and also has a non boarding 'after school club' open until 8pm.

Our individualised approach underpins all our work and is supported by high staffing ratios and close monitoring of progress, potential and social, physical and emotional well being of every young person.

Every child has the right to enter school every morning feeling respected and safe.  They should know that what they are expecting to be taught is appropriate to them and will challenge them. They should also get regular opportunities to sense the amazing feeling of success.

Staff and pupil relationships are a strength of this school.  Staff and pupils build mutual respect through talking and sharing time throughout every minute of the school day.  Our standards of behaviour and discipline have been noted as outstanding by two different external inspectors.

Behaviour begins in the classroom.  Excellent teaching nearly always brings excellent behaviour.  Further to this, our pupils know their boundaries and are taught and encouraged to behave rather than told to behave.  Incidents are dealt with professionally and swiftly and appropriate action is taken.

Our new approach to the curriculum inspires learning and promotes relevance by providing opportunities to use and apply skills as they develop.  We make no apologies for a heavy emphasis on literacy and numeracy, but we balance this out with a broad range of other subjects, many of which carry outside accreditation.

We are very proud of our growing vocational opportunities.  We continue to provide construction and small animal care and have added bike maintenance, painting and decorating and sound technology, as well as hair and beauty and car maintenance.

All pupils in Year 9, 10 and 11 complete ASDAN accreditation's that develop their personal and social skills.
