Furze Down School is a Specialist School in North Buckinghamshire providing a supportive and aspirational environment for children with complex Special Educational Needs. This was recognised by Ofsted in 2006, 2009, 2014 and 2018.

Our values of personal responsibility and respect have been instrumental in developing an ethos where views, beliefs and differences are appreciated and given a voice. Ofsted recognised our strong emphasis on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, judging behaviour to be outstanding and support for families exceptional.

Our Specialist SEN Status was awarded in July 2009 in recognition of our leading practice in supporting children with Communication and Interaction difficulties, and this became the starting point for us to develop as a Centre of Excellence for SEN.

We employ our own dynamic Therapy and Wellbeing Team, comprising Speech & Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Therapy Assistants, a Clinical Nurse Specialist and a Family Liaison Lead. The Speech & Language Therapy Team is led by an experienced practitioner, who provides regular opportunities for clinical supervision and facilitates termly Journal Clubs. Continuing Professional Development is actively encouraged and the team join their teacher colleagues in their Lesson Study groups, where research and reflection facilitate and promote dialogue, discussion and solution-focused practice. All therapists are actively encouraged to grow and develop their areas of clinical interest, and will be offered support to further specialise in these areas, where training is applicable to meet the needs of current caseloads.

We are looking to expand our team of Speech & Language Therapists as our school numbers increase. We offer a three-tier provision, within an inclusive and integrated approach, working alongside pupils from 4 to 19 years with a wide range of special educational and clinical needs, including ASD, DLD, CAS and dysphagia. We are a well-resourced department, with access to a comprehensive range of assessments and digital resources. Therapists have their own ipads which can be used for therapy, recording and uploading clinical notes and liaising with parents through our digital correspondence platforms such as Seesaw and Google Classroom.

Therapists enjoy parity with their teacher colleagues in working term time only, with paid school holidays.
