Purbeck View School

We have a flexible approach to learning, personalising the curriculum and teaching groups to meet students' individual learning needs and abilities.


Purbeck View School offers a diverse, active and highly structured curriculum within an environment that is calm, consistent and purposeful. We aim to ensure that all areas of need from the individuals Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are well provided for.


We have designed a curriculum to address the main deficits experienced in autism; communication, social interaction and imagination.


Our curriculum supports our young people at whatever skill level they require, and follows their individualised progress. The young people take part in educational activities on site, such as learning vocational skills on a farm.


Post-16 education for our young people is arranged in partnership with local colleges. 


Learning doesn't stop when education ends - teaching staff work closely with care staff to ensure that our young people have access to opportunities.


The young people at Purbeck View School practice life skills in the home environment with the care staff, or when out in the community.


All young people are offered opportunities to develop work related learning skills or where appropriate attend work experience placements. 

Qualifications we offer include:


✓ Entry Level

✓ Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

✓ ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence)
