Head PhotoThe David Lewis School is a specialised non-maintained residential school providing: educational, therapeutic, social and medical support services to young learners form 14 to 25 years old. These include day and residential places. Day and residential school places are provided for children and young people with complex neurological conditions, specific, multiple and profound learning disabilities. We believe that all our pupils can learn and we offer them every opportunity to learn and progress, every day.
The school provides a holistic model of education, in its widest sense, every child will have a learning programme based on their individual needs, all supported by extensive input from our medical and Therapeutic teams. Our teachers are highly experienced and our pupils learning is supported and informed by a team of Specialists: Doctors, Nurses, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists and Behavioural management Specialists. About 85% of our pupils are residents, and of these the majority are resident for up to 52 weeks each year.
Most of our pupils have the potential to present with some form of challenging behaviour unless their specific needs and their learning environment are managed appropriately. We practice Positive Behaviour Management across the school, with very positive results. We are flexible enough to ensure our learning environments are designed and modified to meet the needs of all our learners.
We have a high degree of expertise in dealing with young people with Autism and Epilepsy. Indeed our residential assessment service focuses on the interaction between a young person's epilepsy, learning difficulties and behaviour based on an analysis of seizure activity, medical management and a review of diagnosis. Initially, with a medical referral, children may be offered a one/two term period of residential assessment in The David Lewis School.
For further information regarding the school please contact Billy Mc Inally, Director of Education on 01565 640141.
