Service Description

Stephen Hawking School is a special school for approximately 75 pupils between two and 11 years of age in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The majority of the children at the school have profound and multiple learning difficulties. A significant number of children have additional sensory and physical impairments.

The school offers a safe, positive and challenging environment for its pupils. We have high expectations of all children which, we believe, helps them to reach their potential. These high expectations are supported by teachers, many of whom have specialist qualifications in the education of children with learning difficulties, and support staff who receive considerable on-site training.

We are supported by members of the local primary care trust who provide nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. In addition, we have high level support from the local authority’s peripatetic teachers for the hearing and visually impaired. All of these services are an integral part of our work.

We consider our partnership with parents and other members of the local community to be outstanding. We believe strongly that parents and other community members need to be involved in the education provided at the school so that all children are ready to take their place in the wider community.
