Chasetown Community School is a small special middle school for pupils with emotional, behavioural and social difficulties. We have 58 pupils who have all come to us after experiencing problems in mainstream settings. Pupils arrive in the school throughout the year and into any year group. Many of the pupils have underlying learning difficulties. By the time they come to us they and their families have generally disengaged from schools and education. Our first task is to re-engage them in the learning experience. We do this using a wide variety of different strategies.
