Welcome to Lady Zia Wernher School website. 

Lady Zia Wernher School is a Primary Community Special School educating children between the ages of 2 and 11 years. All children attending the school have a learning difficulty; and additional needs which can include physical disabilities, autistic spectrum condition, medical requirements or a combination of these additional needs.
Our experienced, creative and skillful staff ensure the children access a rich and varied curriculum and develop their skills in the key aspects of communication, cognition, social and life skills, well-being and movement. A range of strategies and environments are used to support leaning, for example Makaton signing, PECS, a therapeutic approach of de-escalation, creative arts, multi-sensory environments, eating programmes, rebound therapy, and educational visits.

The core purpose of Lady Zia Wernher School is to enable all the children to enjoy their learning, to make progress and to achieve in every facet of their education. In addition the school endeavours to ensure the children’s achievements are recognised and celebrated by the community in which they live and society in general. The child’s family is fundamental to their progress and successful learning and the core purpose is most effective when the school and families work in partnership, sharing the journey of learning, together. The strength of partnership with our families is a reflection of the strength of the school.  

If you are considering our school for your child I would be pleased to welcome you for a visit and answer any questions you may have. 

We are a busy friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school (we endeavour to offer our latest polices and procedures), as well as providing regular updated information for parents, carers and families on our class and news pages.   

Please check out our Facebook page and Twitter feed for photographs and stories of some of our recent events.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, however do contact us if you would like to visit and see the school in action.

Thank you for visiting our website..
