The majority have a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, while other pupils’ disabilities are caused by acquired brain injury or genetic condition. A growing number of children require full time help to breathe, using a ventilator.
The majority of pupils have a learning disability, including some who have profound and multiple learning difficulties. However, others are cognitively able and their barriers to learning are their medical needs and physical disabilities.
Our vision is for every young person at Chailey Heritage School to be given every opportunity to make progress towards fulfilment. We will never, ever give up looking for ways to support our young people to make their own choices in life, and to achieve their own desired destinations.
Our specialist facilities are second to none and include an award-winning mobility and track system, a multi-sensory studio with the latest technology to improve sensory awareness, a hydrotherapy pool, all-weather therapeutic horse riding and cutting-edge ICT facilities. Pupils have on-site access to clinical and therapeutic input from our NHS colleagues enabling the very best provision of treatment and care.
