Headteacher’s Welcome

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Brays School.

We are a special school which prides itself in creating a happy, caring and supportive atmosphere where every pupil is inspired to achieve their potential and develop a love of learning and staff who encourage them to become as independent as possible. 

We are proud of our pupils’ achievements and we provide all our pupils with a personalised education, using strategies known to promote communication, problem solving and life-long skills.  

Our highly committed and caring staff ensure that the children receive the highest level of education and well-being. Our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We make sure every decision we make is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of our pupils. 


Our curriculum is underpinned by the development of core and specific skills. Our Thematic curriculum promotes learning and provides the basis for an education rich in communication, choice making and independent thinking.  

We value our excellent relationships with parents, carers and other visitors to school and work closely with them to share our combined knowledge and skills to help every child reach their potential. 

Please browse through our website and find out more about our fantastic school. We encourage visits and you are more than welcome to come and meet us, see our school and chat to our friendly children and staff.   

We look forward to working with you and your child and welcoming you to our very special school.
