Here at Painters Ash we nurture and care for all of our pupils so that they can all reach their full potential and we do this by trying our utmost to cater for their individual needs. We truly believe that each and every child can achieve regardless of any additional needs.

It is our priority to make sure that all children are given the support and resources they need to reach their academic goals and be fully prepared for the next steps in their lives, enabling them to leave Painters Ash as confident, well-rounded, sociable young people with the life skills that they need for the world.

All children, regardless of additional educational needs, are fully included in all school activities. Full use of externally provided facilities is made where appropriate. You will find all the information you need in our SEND information report 2021-22 below
