Delius is a nursery and primary school (2-11 years) offering high quality generic specialist provision for children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). These include complex medical, physical, emotional and learning difficulties and disabilities, and are sometimes described as profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), or severe learning difficulties, or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).
We deliver, track and assess progress in 4 key areas; Cognition and Learning; Communication and Interaction; Social, Emotional and Mental Health and Sensory and or Physical.
However we nurture the whole child and work hard to engage families in all that we do.
It is our mission to provide world class quality teaching and learning for all our pupils. Our priority is to develop safe, happy learning.
We opened to pupils on April 26th 2010 after several years of reorganisation within the special school sector in Bradford. Pupils came from 5 different special schools and some were new to school. Staff came from 7 different special schools. We have had a successful journey and are proud of our ‘continuing Good’ Ofsted Inspection (March 2017). As proud as we are to have achieved this status, we remain determined to improve standards at Delius.
We also work effectively with partners to support world class standards for all children and young people with SEND. We are executive partners on Shanidar, the new Inclusive SEND Teaching School Alliance, and we hope to convert to an Academy and join the Co-op Academy Trust (CAT) this academic year.
We hope you enjoy learning about our school through our website and we look forward to seeing you here again soon.
