Including the Special School



The Hadley Learning Community is an exciting new PFI development that is home to, amongst other things, the relocated Bridge Special School.

The Bridge caters for children with severe and profound learning difficulties and is moving out from cramped and inadequate facilities in to the new state-of-the-art HLC extended school.

But with government building guidelines rather out of date, headteacher Una van-den-Berg feels she has to fight hard to ensure her pupils get the space and facilities they need.

This programme highlights the hardships that staff and pupils face in the old Bridge Special School and shows how Una and her team get involved in designing the Hadley Learning Community.
