September 2021 - August 2026
At a meeting of Cabinet on 19th November 2019 a decision was made to approve the establishment of a new maintained special school with a single leadership team for the existing St Nicholas, Rowdeford and Larkrise schools. Approval was also given to a £33 million capital investment which would lead to an expansion on the Rowde site to accommodate up to four hundred pupils.
In September 2020, these three special schools came together and opened their doors as one school: Silverwood.
Silverwood School sits at the very heart of Wiltshire’s System of Excellence, delivering a high quality outreach service across the county to ensure that all children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities have access to a first class education.
I am delighted to present the first Silverwood Five Year Strategic Plan, outlining the framework and direction for our school from September 2021 to July 2026, building on the vision, mission and values which are central to all our work. This Strategic Plan outlines our ambitions, aspirant aims and goals for Silverwood over the next five years.
Silverwood’s Five Year Strategic Plan is complemented by the School Development and Improvement Plan (SDIP), a shorter term operational plan extending over a period of one to two years. The SDIP is developed by the Executive Team and sets out in operational terms how the long-term strategy of the school is to be achieved.
Our Vision: ‘Building Community, Inspiring Learning’
We will enhance opportunities, enjoyment, and outcomes for Silverwood pupils by:
Our vision is supported through our deeply held school values:
