Head’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Southview School. I hope you find the information here informative, helpful and interesting. Please feel free to contact me or anyone at the school if you need any further information or have any questions.

Southview School is a 3-19 day special school for Physically and Neurologically Impaired (PNI) children and students situated in a modern, inclusive and accessible building in Witham.

It is unique in Essex Local Authority as the only special school exclusively for PNI children and students. Southview School is staffed by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers, support staff and therapists who work collaboratively to provide a high quality learning experience for all our children and students. By working with the school team, external agencies and of course parents and carers, we put holistic needs of our children and students at the centre of all we do.

We are experienced in using a wide variety of equipment and technologies to support our children and students, enhance their experiences and keep them safe. Children and student’s well being, development and educational progress is monitored through reviews of their needs, and our bespoke assessment systems ensure we deliver a tailored individual learning experience for all. Where we need to extend our experiences, we work closely with many mainstream schools to provide a local educational provision where it is appropriate.

I look forward to seeing you in school!

Julian Cochrane

Head Teacher
