Welcome to the Uffculme School website
As Headteacher of Uffculme School, it is truly a pleasure be part of such a dynamic and special community. We are very lucky to have such a committed and skilled group of staff who are so passionate about helping the children and young people make progress and to reach their very best. This is a wonderful place to learn and work. Our children have enjoyed many years of success at Uffculme, but we continue to expand our provision to enhance further the learning opportunities and experiences of our young people.
Our Foundation, KS1 and KS2 students are based on the Woodlands site in Queensbridge Road in attractive grounds, comprising 7 acres. This borders onto Highbury Park which has enabled us to develop part of the site to accommodate a Forest School. Our KS3 and KS4 students (11-16 yrs) are primarily based at Chamberlain House, which is situated 400 metres from our primary building. Our Russell Road building (400 metres from Chamberlain House) caters for KS5 (students aged 16-19 yrs) who have the most complex ASD needs. The education here focuses on preparing the students for adult life with an emphasis on daily living skills.
We are extremely proud of the work that we do at Uffculme and are always seeking to improve in our practice and to develop the opportunities we present to our pupils in order to help achieve their best. Our recent Ofsted (June 2019) awarded us a grading of Good. We are keen to move this to Outstanding and have lots of exciting ideas to help us get there. Staff at Uffculme are warm and supportive towards all of our pupils and there is a real sense of caring and high expectations around the school. As Headteacher, it is a school of which I am incredibly proud.
