The Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Clarity Independent School, an open-hearted, nurturing and academically challenging special needs school. Here, students can thrive and learn to be compassionate and caring citizens. I am delighted to serve as the Head Teacher in this forward-looking, up-and-coming school.
At Clarity, we believe that children thrive in a loving environment, where they are free to be themselves, to be happy, to grow and learn...

We are committed to safeguarding...
"Our school is committed to our whole-school approach to safeguarding, which ensures that keeping children safe is at the heart of everything we do, and underpins all systems, processes and policies...We promote an environment where children and young people feel empowered to raise concerns and report incidents and we work hard in partnership with pupils, parents and care-givers to keep children safe."
Clarity Safeguarding Policy September 2023
Our mission statement:
Is to provide motivating, fun, tailor made education, at a level, pace and content specifically matched to the children's needs. We employ a high teacher to pupil ratio of specialist staff, to address learning difficulties, not merely accept them as being static and final. At Clarity, we have sourced an all-embracing package of therapies and interventions for all the children, so that they can heal, where possible, and develop improvements in their skills. We challenge them to exceed expected progress and hence lessen the impact that learning difficulties can have on the rest of their lives. We are working hard in partnership with the children and families to alleviate mental health difficulties, such as anxiety and depression, providing extra nurture and reassurance, particularly after the pandemic. At Clarity, we ignite a fresh start in learning, where it has previously not been possible. We lessen the load by providing for the children's needs, so that they can get on with enjoying learning, loving being here, and being excited to come to school each day.
