Welcome to Ifield School
Welcome to Ifield School's online prospectus. Thank you for taking an interest in the school and the courses it offers.
Ifield School is a Foundation Special School catering for 210 pupils and students who have Special Educational Needs. The school is equipped to support the National Curriculum from Year Reception to Year 13. Ifield School is a special school for children and young people with profound, severe and complex needs. Almost half of all pupils have a diagnosis of autism, and speech and language difficulties; some have complex medical needs.
Ifield School has been judged to be outstanding by Ofsted in 2011 and again in February 2014:
"All pupils achieve exceptionally well throughout the school because staff know each one very well. Pupils make excellent progress from their starting points. They make significant gains in improving their reading, writing, communication and mathematics skills.
The outstanding teaching is very successful in ensuring the overwhelming majority of pupils make excellent progress. Teaching targets support for the pupils’ needs very effectively.
The Sixth Form is excellent. Pupils have extensive opportunities to experience life outside school. These successfully help prepare them for their next steps in later life and learning."
- to integrate students from Ifield School and other feeder schools in a college environment
- to provide a smooth transition from school to colleg.
- to enable students to develop skills that will be relevant to them in adult life
Ifield teaching staff are highly experienced practitioners. An increasing number of staff hold post graduate qualifications in the area of special educational needs.
At the nursery, school and Sixth Form teachers are supported by dedicated teaching assistants and a Speech and Language team.
All learners leave Ifield School and Ifield Sixth Form with accredited qualifications. The overwhelming majority of students move onto other courses or into employment.
At Sixth Form students follow an Individual Learning Programme that is intended to equip them to follow their life goals. The programme is based on what the student has already achieved, what they would like to do in the future and the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to achieve future goals including qualifications.
