The school age range has recently been extended and a new provision was established in September 2016 catering for Post 16 students at CTS @ The Avelon site in Rainham. The school was awarded Specialist Status in Communication and Interaction since 2007, successfully re-designating in 2010. The school established an internal specialist department within the school, individual language and communication programmes throughout the school and an outreach advisory service to support language and communication development work in other schools in the borough.The Governers and staff at the school are firmly committed to the care of the children who attend the school. Our aim is to enable all pupils to achieve their maximum academic, physical and moral achievement so that they may ultimately make their valued contribution to society and to prepare them for adult life.The school aims to become a Centre of Excellence in support of its own pupils and the local school community.

Admissions

Children and young people can be admitted at any time during the academic year but it has become usual in recent years for the school to have its full complement by the beginning of the school academic year.

All pupils coming to the school have a statement of Special Educational Needs.  Admission is through Havering SEN department who have a panel to decide when admission to our school may be appropriate.  The SEN Education Department is based at London Borough of Havering, Mercury House, Mercury Gardens, Romford, Essex – see London Borough of Havering Policy Arrangements for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs.
