Headteacher Welcome Message

Thank you for visiting our school website. May I begin by offering you a very warm welcome on behalf of our community of brilliant pupils, parents and carers, staff and governors. We hope, through exploring our online content, you will gain a better understanding of our forward-thinking school.

Bleasdale School caters for children and young adults aged 2-19 years, with profound and multiple learning disabilities, severe learning difficulties, and/or a diagnosis of autistic spectrum condition. Set in an area of natural beauty, we are a small school where everybody knows one another well. Having retained an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating for many years, staff and governors continue to strive to achieve our very best and remain passionate about the work we do. We are a SEN/D community who embraces inspiration, creativity and inclusivity via our central ethos “Learning Together, Achieving Together”. By empowering equality, we enable collaboration as equal partners, bringing together our combined knowledge through coaching to provide exceptional teaching and learning for all of our pupils’ needs.

Our core aims:

  1. Place the students at the heart of everything we do.
  2. Place inquiry and reflection as an important part of our practice.
  3. Provide a curriculum that prepares our pupils for adulthood.
  4. Provide person centred learning that is suited to the individual needs of the learner.
  5. Provide the learner with the skills required to maximise their full potential, both currently and in their future.

Creating a personalised education and care package for each pupil recognises how unique and special the pupils are. We value all achievements and celebrate them with our school community, both within school and online.

Please do explore our online content which will provide you with a stronger insight into Bleasdale School’s life. We are beyond proud of our school community and would welcome the opportunity to share further information with you.
