Winchelsea has children from 3 to 16 years of age and is currently organised as eleven classes including a developing provision for some children with autistic spectrum disorders.

Children progress through the school by age but with some consideration given to individual needs and development.

Because of the wide age range of the school we find it convenient to pursue some of the school activities as first, middle and senior departments.

Children within Key Stages 3 and 4 will spend one day each week accessing some specialist facilities and teaching at Rossmore Community College (our local secondary school). These pupils will be accompanied by our own staff.


We provide children at Winchelsea with a curriculum that is designed to meet their individual needs and allow them to develop their full potential. Many children will require elements of the curriculum to be modified to meet their particular needs, whilst complying with National Curriculum requirements, this will be done through the use of Individual Education Plans.

Each child will have access to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum and will have maximum access to the National Curriculum.


After a pupil’s 14th birthday a ‘Transition Review’ takes place at which the pupil, parents / guardians, teachers, Careers Service and other relevant agencies consider the post-school opportunities for each pupil. An individual action plan is drawn up to enable and encourage a partnership in preparing the pupil for leaving school in the most productive way. A range of transition related, educational opportunities is devised with reference to this plan. For some pupils this includes a period of work experience. The transition programme includes visits to a variety of places of work and a Link Course at Bournemouth and Poole College of Further Education.
