Special School Provision

Sensorylearning

The North West SILC is a multi-sited special school. This provides a range of pupil placement opportunities.

At Penny Field (Meanwood) we meet the needs of children and young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. Due to the complexity of need we have specialist staff who are well trained and experienced. This includes an inclusion nursing team on site full-time and a high level of physiotherapist input as well. We have a hydrotherapy pool at Penny Field and a recent addition is a sunken trampoline for Rebound Therapy and exercise. The curriculum is largely sensory-based in order to match to the needs of the children and young people.

Green Meadows (at Guiseley) consists of two sites – Bradford Road and Back Lane.

At Bradford Road we meet the needs of predominantly primary-aged pupils, many of whom have communication and interaction difficulties including autism. We also work with an early years education provider to enable some youngsters a mainstream early years learning experience.

Back Lane is our secondary site where students can remain until they are 19. The students have a range of needs with many in the area of communication and interaction, including Autism

Facilities at Green Meadows include a hydrotherapy pool, a poly-tunnel (for growing fruit and vegetables), large outdoor areas, Multi-Use Games areas and a wild-life/Outdoor learning zone.
