Coronavirus status: ONLINE SERVICE

Pace is a family centred school that specialises in educating children with Cerebral Palsy and related disorders. Pace provide an innovative education tailored to the child’s individual abilities setting and achieving academic and functional goals. Due to the complex nature of many Pace children, Pace also has an on site nursing team. 

Our unique Pace approach brings together input from paediatric occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, conductive educationalists and teachers. This breadth of expertise means your “whole child” remains at the centre of their education. At Pace we believe in every child’s ability to achieve and progress, and it is our job to ensure that children have the right skills to do just that. 

A bespoke curriculum is developed for each child, at a just right level to ensure they are challenged and make progress functionally and academically. The differentiated delivery by class and the tailored learning by individuals means the curriculum is rich, and the range of methodology in toolkit for delivery adds real depth and value to the learning experience.
