Executive Headteacher's Welcome
Welcome to the Paddock School Website.
I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher of Paddock School where we nurture, inspire and transform lives.
We are a split site dedicated, caring special school with an experienced and skilled staff team. Our staff have expert knowledge in a range of specialist strategies including TEACCH, PECS, Attention Autism, Makaton and Intensive Interaction, and are committed to putting pupils first in everything they do.
Paddock is a happy and safe place where pupils are encouraged and supported to achieve the goals that have been co-produced with the team around the child.
We benefit from a multi professional team including on site Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists, high levels of CAMHS and Educational Psychology support and close links with the social workers from the Wandsworth 0-25 service.
We work closely with parents and have a full time family liaison officer who supports families from their child's transition into school with coffee mornings, family training and offering a listening ear when needed. We have earned the Leading Parent Partnership Award because of our commitment to supporting families to make the most of being part of the Paddock Community.
We are an inclusive school and pride ourselves is raising awareness of equalities and fundamental human rights, creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment. We are proud to be a Level 2 UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
I hope that you find this website useful to learn more about our wonderful school. You are warmly welcomed to arrange a visit to see our work in practice.
