Welcome to Cardrew Court School

We are delighted to welcome you to our school community.  At Cardew Court School we are committed to keeping every child safe, placing the child at the centre of everything that we do.

Cardrew Court School is an Independent Special School that will cater for nearly 50 students aged 9-16.  We provide education and care for pupils with SEMH needs presenting as high-level anxiety school refusal. 

Cardrew Court School will provide pupils with a permanent placement in a school that can personalise the curriculum and wider support offer to ensure that specific special educational needs (education, health and care) are understood and met. We will enable pupils to learn, apply and develop specific strategies to facilitate them in participating in learning and preparing them for life beyond school. 

Cardrew Court School will offer a pupil centred curriculum that meets pupils at their stage and not simply their age. Curriculum overviews will apply the National Curriculum where at all possible, using this as an aspirational baseline, whilst also offering spiral curriculum pathways that allow for individual, small step success the moment a pupil starts at the school. 

Cardrew Court School will provide tailored accreditation pathways supporting pupils who may have spiky learning profiles to make academic progress as well as benefit from the therapeutically informed programmes.
