We include parents and class teachers as key partners in the team and work closely with them, enabling them to help their children more effectively.

Whatever a child needs, we try our best to ensure that it is provided. We work closely with other professionals when necessary and implement their recommendations. "Pupils attending the SLB achieve well. Pupils thrive in a highly positive learning environment." - Ofsted March 2015

• highly organised with high expectations of achievement, attainment and behaviour from all pupils;
