Message from the Principal

Stepping Stones Special School for Children with Autism and Complex Needs is a vibrant, warm and happy school where children are celebrated and cherished. I am honoured to work in collaboration with a very specialised and professional team of dedicated staff.

Our Curriculum is broad and balanced and we pride ourselves in providing evidence based teaching and learning with a characteristic reflective type of practice that makes us strive for excellence. We focus on the development of Communication, Social and Independence skills, as well as, Literacy and Numeracy that are functional and age appropriate. We aim to provide our pupils with as many tools as possible to achieve independence and functionality in life.

We have high expectations for every pupil and our experienced staff ensures that each pupil’s individual needs are met through small classes and group teaching.

We believe that working in partnership with our parents is fundamental and we operate an ‘open door’ policy. Parents and families like to be part of their children’s lives in school, and research shows that parental involvement in their children’s education positively affects the child’s performance in school.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or queries.
