We also have support for learning teachers who provide support for children when needed.The school also works closely with a range of other support agencies and volunteers in order to provide the best possible experience for children with additional support needs.

We have closed classrooms as well as a library and a school hall which doubles as the gym and canteen.The school playground and has recently been up graded to provide a stimulating outdoor learning and play space for the children.

We have the added advantage of having Gordon Park within close proximity, which we use for sports and outdoor learning.
