Welcome To Eresby Special School

Welcome to our website!

We hope that you enjoy taking a look at everything that our school has to offer.

We are a small special school, based in the market town of Spilsby, Lincolnshire. Our pupils are aged between 2 and 19 years old.

Our curriculum, teaching and ethos is designed to meet the needs of children and students who have Severe to moderate Learning Difficulties and complex needs. Our pupils needs are wide ranging including those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, varying degrees of developmental delay, profound and multiple difficulties and Sensory Difficulties.

We have been twice rated as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted, who praised the fact that:

“All pupils and groups of pupils make exemplary progress, whatever their age or ability. Pupils with severe learning difficulties are challenged to do their very best and do so, whether they are trying out skills independently for the first time or learning new ones.”

At Eresby School we maintain a caring and happy atmosphere where pupils can feel safe and are given the encouragement and support to achieve their best. We attach great importance to meeting the needs of the individual and celebrating successes, however small, of all our pupils. The Pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We value mutual respect, co-operation and trust to ensure a real sense of community within a positive learning environment.

We aim for all our students to leave Eresby confident  and happy, as independent as their special education needs allows ready to take on the challenge of life beyond school. The committed and highly experienced staff work determinedly towards this by ensuring every student reaches their full potential. We work closely with parents to ensure a deep understanding of each child’s needs, encouraging a consistent approach that will help children grow and develop both in school and home life.

We hope that our website provides you with all the information you need. If not, then please feel free to get in touch or arrange a visit to our school.
