Welcome to Meadowbank!

I have great pleasure in welcoming you to Meadowbank School, a primary special school supporting children aged 4-11 years who have developmental language disorders (DLD) and a range of complex learning needs.


For many years the school specifically supported pupils with Specific Language Impairments (SLI). Following a Local Authority consultation at the start of 2018 we have continued to support pupils with DLD, but now also admit pupils with a range of other complex learning needs, including pupils with Autism, Global Delay, Downs Syndrome and some physical/ medical needs. Over the past 18 months the school has grown significantly in size. We have 34 pupils on roll from September 2019, with continued expansion expected in the coming years.


Our new website aims to tell you a little about the school and the exciting learning experiences that take place here. Our ethos focuses on the child being at the centre of all learning, with creative, wellbeing and life skill experiences being at the heart of our curriculum.


This past year we have worked particularly hard to adapt parts of our school building to meet the needs of our pupils. We have recently installed a new soft play facility to support gross motor development and a fantastic new interactive sensory room.


If you are considering Meadowbank as a placement for your child then we are happy to give you a tour of the school at your convenience. All placements are made by the Local Authority and a pupil needs to have a Statement of Special Educational Needs to access a place. Alternatively, if you have any questions/queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
