And an introduction from our Headteacher:

I would like to welcome you to our school website. Wyvern School is a special school for children with severe, profound and complex needs that caters for learners from 3-19. I hope this website will highlight the very dynamic nature of the school and share with you our ethos, aims and values.

Having a child with any additional needs can be a daunting, lonely and frightening process, where you can feel frustrated and angry at the system and support available. The school aims to support and enable families in all aspects of their experience of school and in the growth and development of their child or children with additional needs. We work in a multidisciplinary manner with learners and we have the support of the Rainbow Centre sharing the site which is a Multi-Agency Specialist Hub (MASH) and together;

We will aim to get your child to be as independent as possible throughout and on leaving the school.

To academically reach their full potential.

We will give your child a positive and age appropriate experience of school.

We will celebrate your child’s achievements, and get to know your child as an individual and to understand their individual needs.

We will give your child a varied, exciting and interesting experience in their time at Wyvern School.

Our goal for all children is reintegration to properly supported mainstream environments. Although we know for many learners this may not be achievable.

We cannot guarantee that we will always get everything right, but if we do not, we will work to get to a mutual resolution and endeavour to prevent any mistake happening again.

I hope that you will view our website, look at our news and achievements, and support us in fully realising the lives of our young learners who are working to overcome significant barriers.

We are proud of our learners and the school endeavours to deliver the care and sensitivity of a family approach where every member is valued and is important.

Thank you for your interest in our school.

Household Support Fund Scheme

Dear Parents/Carers

Funded by the UK government, the Household Support Fund scheme supports vulnerable Kent households in need of help with significantly rising living costs.

You can apply up until 30 September 2022, or until the budget is spent.

If successful, support will be provided in the form of the following:

Vouchers will be sent by email or SMS text.  If the household have no access to the internet or email, the vouchers will be posted to their home address.

There is a limited amount of funding available for this scheme and funds will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, with only one award per household.

Who is eligible?

Households will be eligible for assistance if they:

∙             are aged 16 or over

∙             are a Kent resident, permanently living within one of the 12 local authorities covered by Kent County Council (this excludes Medway,  Bexley or Bromley).

∙             are in receipt of means-tested benefits or household income is less than £16,200 per annum before tax

∙             haven’t previously accessed this round of Household Support funding.

This is a separate scheme to the Kent Support and Assistance Service (KSAS), funded by the UK government.  If support is required as a result of the increase in cost of living, apply for the Household Support Fund on the following link: https://www.kent.gov.uk/social-care-and-health/care-and-support/benefits/household-support-fund
