Friesland School is an inclusive school where all children, no matter what their starting point, can thrive across the entire curriculum.  All students are entitled to an inspiring education and our skilled staff ensure that individual needs are met and barriers to learning removed. 

Our consistent and thoroughly researched lesson structure gives all students the confidence to achieve in all of their lessons, and is backed up by our Pupil Passport system to support teachers meet the needs of individuals. 

We have an experienced and dedicated SEND team who care for and support our students with additional needs to succeed at Friesland.  We have a strong local reputation for our SEND provision, built up over a number of years, which is in no small measure due to the work of this exceptional team.
