About The Westminster School
The Westminster School caters for pupils aged 7 to 19 years with a wide range of special educational needs including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Global Development Delay and Moderate to Severe Learning Difficulties.
We moved to our new site in February 2011. The School was purpose built. Most ground floor classrooms have access to outside spaces, incorporating Learning Outside the Classroom into our enriched curriculum. Our values are encompassed in our statement of Safe, Happy and Learning Together. Through this we seek to develop our values statement: Building foundations and providing opportunities to create confident, aspirational and independent members of our community.
Our most recent Ofsted Inspection in November 2017 recognised we were an Outstanding School. The report stated that our “leaders are fundamentally committed to improving the life chances of pupils with SEN and disabilities, both at The Westminster School and across the country.” All pupils are supported to reach their full potential with a level of independence, confidence and resilience according to their special needs in order that they have the ability to face the challenges of adult life.
Our work on supported internships and supported apprenticeships for students with learning disabilities are at the forefront of national developments. All of our committed, enthusiastic staff are well qualified and highly skilled. This translates into an amazing working environment for both staff and pupils. Ours is a happy School. As identified in our recent Ofsted Inspection Report, “There is a lot of laughter and enjoyment in lessons and around the School.”
We have an exceptionally strong culture of safeguarding, and pupil welfare is one of our highest priorities.
