Head’s Welcome


Turney school is a community for children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and associated learning difficulties.

Developing the whole child and young person is important to us. Our ethos is to provide a secure, caring and supportive environment in which there is an expectation of pupil achievement and raised attainment. This is reflected in all we do and throughout our website.

The school applies an holistic approach to learning, and works closely with the speech therapists, the occupational therapist and the educational psychologist, the school doctor and nurse, as well as outside agencies to enable all children and young people with special educational needs to access the curriculum.

All the young people attending Turney have full access to the National Curriculum, the personal, social, health and citizenship curriculum, as well as a life skills programme. The school aims for pupils to leave Turney as happy and independent young people, ready to enter Further Education.
