Severndale Specialist Academy is one of the largest Special Schools in the country. Unique in our location and structure we are the only special school in Shropshire County. We cater for the educational needs of children and young people with the complete range of ability from the ages of 2 to 19. Additional provision in our partner mainstream secondary, at Mary Webb, and further education college, Shrewsbury College, enriches and further challenges experiences for pupils, promoting our vision to help shape inclusion within our communities.
By working collaboratively with our partners, we aim to create and maximise on opportunities so that all our pupils might one day be able to take their place as an active citizen in their community. We support our aspirational vision through our individualised approach to curriculum delivery, interactions with others, and our relentless focus on pupil outcomes.
Our dynamic and outward facing staff work as one team to ensure consistency and progression in our broad, balanced and relevant curriculum whist utilising expertise from the different aspects of the academy. We take pride in everything we do and therefore put a great emphasis on staff engagement, actively promoting professional development and offer bespoke weekly training, focused on the outcomes of whole school/departmental monitoring. We continuously strive to achieve more, working within supportive structures that help us to further improve, creating safe and happy environments where we can all learn and thrive.
