Coronavirus update 11.9.20: School is still open for the majority of pupils however, we do have to report a positive COVID case. Please be assured that school is taking all the necessary steps by following guidance from Public Health England. Please see the letter from our Headteacher in the latest news section.
We are so pleased that Samuel Laycock School is now re-open. To try to protect as many pupils, staff and families as possible and keep them safe from the virus pandemic, school is operating a bubble system. Each class group is being treated as a bubble with allocated staff. We are encouraging pupils, where appropriate, to wear face coverings in communal parts of school and to socially distance as much as possible. Please continue to keep yourself and your family safe through 'social distancing' at this difficult time!
"Tis goodness not greatness that maketh the true human*"- Samuel Laycock (Poet 1826-1893)
At Samuel Laycock School we are constantly striving to create the best learning opportunities for every student. We aim to provide a specialist, high quality, relevant and balanced education for students aged 11-16 who have moderate learning difficulties. We also tailor the learning experiences for individual students’ social and emotional development. Additionally, the school has a specialist base for students on the autistic spectrum, where students are taught by specialist staff.
