School Description

The Beacon, Folkestone is a purpose built centre of excellence for learning, with outstanding facilities including hydro pool, hi-tech sensory rooms, soft play areas, state of the art PE hall, specialist subject rooms, sensory garden, grassed amphitheatre and life skills house.

The school building is specifically designed to meet the needs of the pupils and caters for 370 pupils aged 3-19 years with Profound, Severe and Complex Needs (PSCN).

The Beacon also hosts a Multi Agency Support Hub. This is one of four centres across the County that brings NHS colleagues, pediatricians, speech and occupational therapists, and nursing services, alongside children’s social services and portage colleagues into one cohesive centre. We are proud of the strong partnerships this brings to benefit the children and families of Shepway.

The Beacon is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and views it with paramount importance. It engages with children and staff in policy and practice developments, and proactively encourages feedback. All postholders are required to obtain an enhanced Criminal Records disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), including checks against the barred list together with all other appropriate vetting procedures.
