Great Dunmow School

Our vision is to be a leading provider of high-quality specialist education and support prioritising safety, trust and respect for all learners to help them achieve their full potential academically, emotional and socially.

Our Aims

At Cambian Great Dunmow School, our mission is to inspire children and young people to achieve their goals and become worthwhile citizens by supporting them in a holistic way to overcome barriers and develop their confidence so that they engage and benefit from the wide range of positive educational and personal development experiences.


By working collaboratively with carers/parents and young people we aim to improved outcomes by:

• Providing a positive, safe and caring environment in which young people and staff feel happy and secure in the process of learning.

• Providing young people with access to high quality education and pastoral care that will enhance personal development, stimulate growth and provide equal opportunity through unique learning experiences both inside the classroom and in the local community

• Developing young people’s self-esteem, independence and awareness of, and consideration for, the feelings and the needs of others within the school and community

• Encouraging young people to positively manage their own behaviour and difficulties by promoting self discipline, supportive interventions as well positive behaviour management

• Establishing a climate within which young people and adults can interact and relate, engendering high levels of mutual interest and personal respect

• Providing a broad and balanced curriculum that meets each young person’s needs, and for those with special needs, an individualised programme of support to access the curriculum and achieve the outcomes
of their Education Health Care Plans (EHCP)

• Promoting the Fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.
