Special schools and specialist centres

Image representing Special schools and specialist centres

The special education needs of children will normally be met in mainstream schools or settings.

For a very few children it is necessary to provide more support that can be provided by a mainstream school and to support those with severe and complex needs there are a number of specialist centres attached to infant, junior, primary and secondary mainstream schools. In addition there are three special schools providing to those who need intensive specialist support.
