A warm welcome to our Paces School website.

Paces is a small specialist school for children living with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological disorders. We are situated in the North of Sheffield and provide education for children from Sheffield and other neighbouring authorities.   Paces is a non-maintained special school that delivers the National Curriculum through the framework of Conductive Education.

It is my absolute pleasure and privilege to be the Headteacher of this very special school. Paces is unique in so many ways which should be both recognised, valued and celebrated. I am extremely proud of our ethos and approach to working with children and families.  The pupils at Paces thrive on the high expectations that staff have of them and the constant encouragement and opportunity to develop their independence.

Our aim is to provide and develop a curriculum that enriches the learning opportunities for all the children.  Our child-centred approach fosters an environment in which each child is given the tools and the motivation to achieve their goals.  Each day at Paces is very carefully planned by our fantastic team of staff who are dedicated to providing the highest level of education possible for the children. The children at Paces constantly amaze me with their fantastic attitude to learning and truly deserve the best that we can offer.

The welfare and safeguarding of all our pupils is of paramount importance to us as a team of staff.  Everyone here is committed to working closely with parents/carers and other professionals and we love sharing the fantastic achievements of all of our children.  We hope that this website gives you an insight into what we do here at Paces.
