If your child presents symptoms whilst at school you will be called and must collect your child as a matter of urgency.

Welcome to Lindsworth School a provision in which all staff work together to support pupils develop their academic and social skills whist encouraging growth in their emotional and mental health well-being. We are a staff team who have high expectations of each and every pupil who attend, inspiring them to achieve success to support them in the next phase of their education, training or employment. We are committed to creating well rounded individuals and believe that in order to do this, we must adopt the philosophy that “One size fits NONE”.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which provides pupils with a wealth of opportunities to expand their experiences. Individualisation is a key focus in all aspects of school life from individualised lessons to behaviour targets and intervention packages for those requiring extra support.

We are proud of the relationships we have built over the years with pupils, parents and a variety of external agencies and this has strengthened the collaborative work and the provision on offer to our pupils.


As a whole school we constantly reflect on our practices and use this to focus improvement and drive initiatives which will enhance the provision. This has taken us through a range of notable achievements such as improving teaching and learning, securing a “Good” from Ofsted and federating with Springfield House School. The federation will enable us to explore ways to further develop the offer in both schools.


All the pupils who attend our school are unique however one key factor we believe they all have in common is “they are all capable of amazing things” and at Lindsworth we create an aspirational culture to facilitate this, where success is celebrated.


We hope you find the website information informative, if you do require any further please do not hesitate to contact us.
