A welcome to JFK Special School from Jim Robinson, Acting Headteacher.
We are a special school with dedicated sites for profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and autism spectrum conditions (ASC), full of fantastic, vibrant and incredibly talented students. Our dedicated and highly skilled staff team are passionate about supporting our pupils and each other. Their constant focus on finding new ways to meet our mission statement of enhancing life through learning is a source of inspiration, and something that makes me, personally, very proud.
Covering ages 5-19 we emphasise the importance of communication skills and increasing independence through engaging activities and a class structure that allows us to personalise each student’s learning journey to fit their individual sensory, behaviour, communication, medical and learning needs.
We aim to work in partnership with parents and other professionals as well as enhancing our links in our local community and beyond. And as a founding member of the Learning in Harmony Trust and with our Teaching School Alliance status we also seek to outwardly support other schools in our region in areas of specialist provision and teaching. We know that a collaborative approach is the only way to ensure the best possible opportunities and outcomes for all learners.
Whilst this is a brief outline of our school I do hope that the information on the rest of this website provides further detail to answer any questions you might have. If you would like to know more however, please do email our inbox firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0208 534 8544 and we will be sure to help. Please also feel free to contact us should you wish to either visit or if you have any suggestions for us to make this site even better.
