Service Description

Welcome to Phoenix School, a well-established special school, which offers a unique service to the children of Tower Hamlets. We offer a rich and stimulating curriculum, which is individually tailored reflecting good practice in an environment that supports the pupils’ learning. The school offers a range of sensory and therapeutic interventions and a multidisciplinary approach to pupil needs. The school has developed a holistic approach working in partnership other agencies, parents and families to have their needs met from one centre. There is a strong focus on maintaining good relationships between home and school. We encourage respect for others, good manners and tolerance.

We believe it is important for pupils to achieve their full potential and importance is placed upon achievement at all levels. Pupil achievement is celebrated and positive rewards are used to promote and encourage good behaviour and learning. There is a caring yet purposeful atmosphere within the school and there is a balance of focus between welfare and achievement for all.
