Executive Headteacher's Welcome
Welcome to Waverley School, where we celebrate each pupil's unique strengths.
We endeavor to support every pupil to be their very best. We work closely with a variety of health professionals to ensure health and therapy needs are incorporated into the pupil’s daily experiences. We have developed bespoke curricula to meet the needs of our pupils. Our staff develop a deep understanding of our pupil’s motivators and interests enabling us to provide learning opportunities that are fun and enriching. We see every minute at school as a learning opportunity and strive to create learning environments that not only meet the pupil’s needs but inspire and develop a sense of wonder.
Despite having 167 pupils, we feel we have created a school that welcomes like a small family school. Our pupils make us proud every day. We hope you will visit the school, so they can show you themselves how truly wonderful they are.
Our Ethos and Values
Once you have visited our school you will recognise our ethos and values. We believe our actions speak louder than our words, our Golden Rules may help you picture our inclusive and respectful school.
