Laleham Gap is a Foundation, Communication and Interaction Special School. We have pupils aged from 4 to 18 years of age. Most of our pupils have a diagnosis of Autism. All pupils have an EHCP. Most pupils will achieve some GCSEs or equivalent at age 16. Laleham Gap is a new, high quality and well-resourced environment and the opportunity to work with an established, experienced and highly motivated team.
Laleham Gap School (Learn, Grow, Succeed) Strives to be the best school that it can be, so that all pupils have the tools to reach their full potential. We are focused on meeting the needs and interests of the individual child, ensuring that progress is made in all areas. This means we are accepting of all pupils from where they are and how they develop. Children are always at the heart of our decision making.
The school seeks to appoint highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals who will continue the excellent support for the pupils that parents and carers expect.
