Range of Provision

Croft Community School meets the needs of pupils with a range of complex learning difficulties and associated conditions including pupils with autism spectrum conditions, attention difficulties and global delay.  Whilst a significant number of our pupils also experience difficulties with behaviour or emotional well-being, pupils will normally come to Croft with learning difficulties as a primary need.  For many pupils this is determined by cognitive profiling (usually carried out by Educational Psychologist as part of statutory assessment); however we recognise that difficulties with learning associated with autism spectrum conditions, attention difficulties and some specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, may not always be associated with levels of cognition (see high functioning groups).  

For all our pupils we believe that getting the emotional climate right is the best way to promote ongoing learning and achievement, and we work with a range of agencies to safeguard and promote the emotional and physical well being of pupils and their families.
