Welcome to Norfolk Park School, a designated Special school situated in the South Eastern sector of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The school population is drawn from a city wide catchment area and caters for children between the ages of three and eleven years with profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, complex medical needs and autism.
The School’s policy targets the provision of a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, based on the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, both of which are adapted and differentiated for each individual’s Special Educational Needs.
The ongoing work of school based staff is also ably supported and complemented by a broad range of additional colleagues school based/local authority/NHS and others all of whom contribute significantly to the work and, hence, the success of Norfolk Park School.
The school moved from its original site to the current premises at Archdale Road which has presented exciting opportunities for growth and development. The Archdale Road premises have been totally restructured and refurbished with the ‘learning’ needs of our pupils very much in the forefront of our minds and include facilities for hydrotherapy; rebound therapy; soft play; and a sensory room. Additional teaching areas such as the food technology room, library and dedicated quiet group rooms, enable our children to practice and embed the skills they learn in the classroom. All classrooms have an integrated hoist system to facilitate moving and handling.
