Welcome to the Heathfield School Website.

Heathfield is a special school for pupils aged between 3 and 11 with moderate or severe learning difficulties. Many of the pupils have additional complex needs.   The OFSTED inspection of the 13th/14th June 2017 rated the school Good across all indicators.  The school's work to promote pupils' personal development and welfare is outstanding. Teaching in art is exceptional.  Our highly motivated team of education and multi-agency professionals offers the highest quality provision dedicated to meeting the educational and other needs of children and families. 

We have the highest expectations of every pupil. Personalised learning plans and challenging educational targets are set and negotiated with parents. Any barriers to learning are identified and strategies to overcome them put in place.

We are a forward thinking community where all pupils and staff are respected for their unique contributions.  Every member of our community succeeds in a supportive, fun and creative environment.

Our new vision and values statement reflects our ambition and dedication to prepare our pupils for a successful transition to the next step.  Our self-values are: Respect, Encouragement, Happiness, Trust, Individuality and Confidence.  Our Learning values are: Cognition, Choice, Communication, Independence and Life skills.

Please look at the website or arrange a visit to fully appreciate what we are about.

We are constantly working to improve our school.
