Half-term

Lots of praise goes out from staff at CAS to all our students who have been working hard on the work packs we delivered and trying out some of the many work and fun activity ideas on our website and Twitter at home. We are getting so many likes and lovely comments. Well done to our students and thank you to their families! It’s especially fun to see your work and photos when you send them to us.

For the foreseeable future, there will be no change to arrangements for working from home, staying safe and well. When the situation is safe and plans do begin to change, parents and carers will hear directly from school.

Please remember to:

Make sure you look out for some extra wellness information and links for over the holiday on our Homework and Activities section of the website Students Page and on our Twitter. New activities and work will be posted from 1/6/20.

Stay safe and well and enjoy a peaceful holiday.

Childwall Abbey School is a Local Authority specialist secondary school for pupils with Complex Learning Difficulties, aged 11-19.  We are located in a beautiful part of the south of Liverpool and have thriving links with our local community.  Our aim is to provide quality education, for pupils who have a wide variety of learning difficulties, often including Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

At Childwall Abbey, we know that all our pupils can achieve, if they are able to experience a curriculum, learning environment and support, which meets their individual needs.

Our Mission Statement underpins all our practice in the daily life of our school.

We aim to be:

“A calm, safe and welcoming place in which to work and learn.
A place where everyone supports each other to achieve.
A place we enjoy coming to each day.”

At Childwall Abbey, we understand the importance of working closely with parents, carers, governors and many other agencies, to develop independence and self-esteem in all our pupils. Pupils are encouraged to develop skills for adult life, to achieve nationally accredited certification, to have opportunities to learn outside the classroom and to become respectful, active and positive contributors to the wider community.

I hope you find our website useful. Please contact school if you require any further help or information.
