Special Schools

A growing number of Special Schools are embracing Values-based Education with the most wonderful impact! 


Congratulations to Wilds Lodge School (An 'Outstanding' Residential Theraputic School) in Leicestershire for recently being the first Special School to achieved the VbE Enhanced Quality Mark. 


Wilds Lodge

'The driving force of the school’s pedagogy is good relationships...Staff are very authentic, real people who share who they are with the pupils. This has a profound effect on building self-confidence and respectful relationships. If a pupil is in need of support because they feel emotionally overwhelmed they feel safe and secure because they know that staff really do care and value them as people. Pupils are constantly faced with dilemmas related to their own behaviour as well as in the formal curriculum. Pupils are invited to think about their behaviour in a non-judgemental way, which helps them to develop the skills associated with self-regulation and self-leadership.'

Dr Hawkes - July 2017 




Rowdeford School in Wiltshire is also one of VbE's superb Quality Mark schools. 


'The school’s core values of ‘responsibility, happiness, cooperation, resilience, respect and caring’ lie at the heart of all that it does. As a result, pupils grow in self-confidence. They learn to overcome any barriers that are part of their initial communication and interaction difficulties.' OFSTED 2016
