Meldreth Manor is a special school and children's home for disabled children and young people ages 6 to 19 years.
We work with students who have special educational needs (SEN) resulting from profound or multiple learning difficulties (PMLD).
Many of our students have cerebral palsy and resulting visual impairments or other sensory loss. Some students have additional health needs such as those associated with epilepsy.
We can cater for disabled children and young people as residential or day students.
We have recently announced a proposal to close Meldreth Manor in March 2016. This is not a reflection of our staff who work hard to provide education, care and support each person who attends Meldreth Manor School.
We are talking and listening to everyone who is affected by the proposal before making a decision on its future.
We realise this may be a difficult time for our staff, young people and families and we are supporting them during this time.

The quality of teaching is outstanding overall... A major strength... is in the focus... on the individual learning targets of each student, derived from their statements of special educational needs and individual education plans.
Our multi-sensory curriculum is based on a holistic approach, integrating therapies with education. We make our school lessons and activities motivating, relevant and fun! We aim to give each child the best possible skills to have an independent life, through effective communication, choices and decision-making.
Our team of full-time therapists are based in the school. We have a Speech and Language Therapist (SaLT) and full-time SaLT technician, a Physiotherapist and an Occupational Therapist. We have trained physiotherapy assistants working with the Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist, and in class, to carry out students' individual physical management programmes.
We also provide music therapy, hydrotherapy, rebound therapy and horse riding.
The site is extensive and accessible. The buildings are purpose-built and also fully accessible.
We also offer residential accommodation – a registered children's home open 52 weeks of the year. It is on the same site as the school and offers a variety of options for accommodation, from full-time to term-time to weekly boarding. Most children in the children's home attend Meldreth Manor School, but it is not mandatory. We also offer respite care and short breaks.
