On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Silverwood School. We are a happy, thriving and successful community where every child and young person is recognised as an individual. Our aim is for all children to reach their potential. Learning is at the centre of everything we do both in and out of the classroom and with so many opportunities at Silverwood School, we are exceptionally proud of the achievement of all our children.
We are enormously proud of Silverwood School and what we provide to our children, their families and the wider community. Silverwood School is staffed by a highly creative and dedicated team of teachers, teaching assistants and therapists who are highly skilled and creative in ensuring our curriculum is exciting and innovative in giving our children the opportunity to be successful, develop a wide range of skills and enjoy their learning. Our staff focus on the uniqueness of each individual child, ensuring they have a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.
Children and young people join us with a wide range of different needs and bring a wonderful mix of interests and personalities. When learning with us at Silverwood, all children and young people are cared for, valued, challenged and supported to achieve the very best they can.
Silverwood School is a new maintained co-educational special school for pupils aged 4 to 19 years. We formed in September of 2020 with campuses in Rowde, Trowbridge and Chippenham: former schools of Rowdeford School, Larkrise School and St Nicholas School. We have an ambitious vison to create a truly integrated and inclusive system of outstanding education for all children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Wiltshire. Wiltshire Council have invested £33 million into our new build at one site, to create a state-of-the-art centre for SEND education, health, care and training across 4-19, with a predominant focus on children with complex SEND.
I hope that our website captures the spirit of Silverwood and provides you with an insight into our school; we warmly encourage families and professionals to visit. We look forward to welcoming you to meet some of our children and staff and to experience, for yourself, the quality of education given to all our children and young people.
If you are interested in finding out more or would like to arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to contact us. Sean McKeown Executive Headteacher
