Head’s Welcome


Welcome to High Park School.

High Park is a specialist school for pupils aged 3-19. Our pupils have Communication and Interaction difficulties, severe learning difficulties, autism and associated sensory processing needs.

We have successfully created a safe, secure and happy learning environment in which our pupils make progress and thrive. Our school’s multi-professional team supports all pupils to access our creative and engaging curriculum, with all areas of the National Curriculum framework (2014) taught through practical experiences in a meaningful and purposeful way. Our curriculum is developmentally and age appropriate and facilitates deep and active learning, involving repetition and rehearsal to consolidate skills for life.



We use the SCERTS Framework to underpin meticulously planned personalised learning and intervention programmes to meet our pupils’ complex and individual needs; for our pupils skills in Social Communication and Emotional Regulation are the building blocks of all other learning.

We carefully track and assess individual pupil progress and our multi-professional team are able to rapidly respond, plan and support the next steps of learning.

Our pupils communicate their happiness at school through their positive interactions and behaviour.

The staff at High Park are absolutely committed and determined that every child will succeed.
