It is with great pride that I welcome you to our wonderful school.
We work very hard to ensure all pupils are happy, safe and can achieve their full potential. All of our pupils have a range of special educational needs but every child is treated as an individual… and they regularly astound us with the things that they achieve!
We regularly consult our parents about our school, asking them what we are good at,and also what we could do better each year. Parents have recently said:
My child arrives home feeling content. Green Park enables my child to feel a sense of belonging and importance on a personal level.”
“The work effort and passion of the team across the board to help the children to develop their full potential. “
“The way my child has learnt to smile, laugh and socialise is amazing and it is a true reflection of the work and care that she receives at Green Park.”
“Communication is excellent.” “I am proud that my children have attended Green Park school and I could not recommend it highly enough to anyone looking for a school in this area.”
“I love the way the teachers care about the children and how they treat them as they would their own. School has such a warm, caring, loving atmosphere to it, it’s such a special place.”

It is Green Park’s belief that all teachers are teachers of Literacy & Communication. We are committed to developing the Literacy Skills of all our students in the belief that it will promote learning, personal growth and development and raise standards across the curriculum. It includes not only the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, New National Curriculum, and 14-19 curriculum, but also includes the various extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our young people. Literacy and Communication is an essential aspect of the school day and everyday life.
In the society in which we live, an ability to communicate effectively, through verbal, non-verbal, written and alternative methods, for example, voice output communication aids, PECS, TaSSeLs, Makaton are essential to promote learning across the curriculum and underpins pupils' achievements and participation in all aspects of their lives.
Communication empowers students to learn and live with a higher level of independency.
Language is central to living and learning. Green Park School fully supports the idea that Literacy & Communication is part of the ‘core business’ of our school and this is reflected in the commitment of the staff to promoting Total Communication as one of the school’s main priorities.
The School Curriculum reflects the heart of needs of the pupils at Green Park. It contains learning that is essential and important in enabling individuals to enhance their quality of life, their ability to communicate choices and to gain independence.
The National Curriculum in its present form can never be what we need in school to meet all our individual children’s needs because its authors have never met our children! It is for this reason that Green Park have taken the brave step in embracing an opportunity to develop a New Creative Curriculum that truly focuses on the primary needs of our students. It welcomes the core statements in the Educational Health and Care Plans which embraces the development of skills needed to live an enjoyable, independent and fulfilled life.
The New Curriculum is a ‘Disciplined Approach to Creative Innovation’ where thematic planning is used to help pupils access exciting learning opportunities. We seek to promote vibrant learning environments where pupils are engrossed and driven to learn – teachers provide stimuli that capture pupils undisrupted attention, which steers their learning and challenges teachers to creatively adapt a secure curriculum to help pupils achieve outstanding results because they are fully engaged. Teachers check that learning is secure and can be applied across all aspects of their lives using functional skills for a purpose.
It is our intent that all students will;
Learn For Life, Follow a Personalised, Functional and purposeful Curriculum, Develop a communication system that is highly effective, Grow in Independence, Apply and Generalise Skills and where appropriate Maintain Skills, Follow a Sequenced Curriculum that enables learners to take the small, individualised steps necessary to develop Knowledge and Skills.

Letters are usually sent to parents via the escort and we now have a text messaging service to parents.
Green Park School came highly recommended to Nilesh and Sapna by the care professionals working with them and Jia. When Nilesh and Sapna looked around, it was the people that really stood out. “When we first viewed Green Park School, the facilities were nothing like they are now but for us that didn’t matter; it was the atmosphere, the warm friendly people that really impressed us,” says Nilesh.
Home from home
According to both delighted parents. “Green Park School is wonderful! It offers a safe, caring and supportive environment which is essentially a home from home. We couldn’t ask for more than we receive from Green Park School and we really can’t recommend it highly enough.”
