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 rated as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted three times, who praised the fact that:

‘Pupils are at the heart of all decisions made by leaders and staff at the school. Pupils, staff and parents work brilliantly together in order to make the very best of all opportunities.’

One pupil told inspectors, 'My school is fantastic.' This comment was typical of pupils' responses throughout the inspection.

'The senior leadership team, comprising the headteacher, two senior teachers and the school business manager, demonstrate a strong determination to keep improving the school. They have high aspirations for pupils, themselves and all adults in the school. This means that everyone is constantly challenged to improve their work further. The headteacher is a regular visitor to all classrooms and she has an excellent understanding about pupils’ individual needs. This attention to detail results in an outstanding education for the pupils.’

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.
