About Danecourt Community School
Danecourt Special School is part of the Maritime Multi-Academy Trust, an innovative partnership of schools in Greenwich, bexley, Kent and Medway . Our schools transform through collaboration and an entrepreneurial curriculum which equips children with life skills.
We are a special school catering for primary aged children who have special educational needs. The children who attend Danecourt have a wide breadth of need including complex learning difficulties, autism and social emotional mental health needs.
At Danecourt our mission is to provide all pupils with a ‘stimulating learning environment where every individual is valued, respected, safe and successful’. All pupils receive a personalised curriculum tailored to meet their specific needs.
The highly trained staff team maintains high expectations of what each individual pupil is able to achieve, striving to ensure that they all reach their maximum potential; celebrating difference and encouraging curiosity and creativity. Staff work collaboratively with families and a range of other agencies in order to meet the pupils needs and as a result, they make strong progress academically, emotionally and socially. Pupil achievement is hugely valued and celebrated in a manner that is meaningful and appropriate for each pupil.
If you are interested in working with us come and visit, meet some of the pupils and staff to experience for yourself the quality of education given to all of our children and the unique atmosphere throughout our school.
I felt in main stream I couldn't provide for and meet the needs of all my SEN children enough to make a true difference to them. I was really interested in finding out more strategies and working more with SEN children. It was a steep learning curve at first but has been amazing to work with such a good team of people who truly want the best for the children. You get to be so creative in the way you teach, and teach valuable life skills and functional skills.- Class Teacher, Danecourt
