Vermont School

Vermont is a small special school in Southampton for children aged 7-11 who experience social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. All of our pupils experience challenging behaviour and may also have many associated conditions and disabilities such as ADHD, Autistic Spectrum disorders and attachment disorders. Every child has a Statement of Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan.

We promote a child-centred approach to enable our pupils to become independent learners and we foster a sense of enthusiasm for learning through a range of real life experiences and practical, hands-on activities. We support social and emotional well being through frequent social skills activities and we also provide ELSA support to develop our children's resilience and coping strategies. We actively try to teach new behaviour skills to enable our children to cope with a range of situations and to teach them life skills for the future.
