The school was developed under the Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy and accomodates the needs of 200 pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). The building is single storey throughout to ensure ease of access to all parts of the school for all pupils and give good access to outdoor play and learning spaces.
The desire of the School was ensure that all class bases had direct access to open soft play areas onto a central courtyard. However, this could not be achieved with the original compact plan. Therefore, the architect's response was to elongate the plan and provide distinct indoor class bases for the nurseries with direct access to outdoor learning and soft play areas. This enabled the school frontage to expand to provide minibus and parent car parking close to the building entrances, an important requirement for SEN students with limited mobility. The Foreland School also offers complementary facilities, including specialist therapy, meeting rooms, hall and dining hall to the community.
