Welcome to The Belsteads School

We are proud of our school environment and the way in which we use the outdoors as an integral part of our curriculum to provide learning and enrichment activities.

We use a range of approaches including the 5P approach, Forest School, PECS and Team Teach, alongside innovative resources and strategies, to ensure we deliver positive learning and health outcomes for our pupils. We provide them with an opportunity to become independent communicators who can access the world around them.

We welcome visits to the school, and hope to see you soon. Please contact me at the school if you would like to arrange a visit or have any questions about what we do.
