Kelford School an all-ages special school, part of the Nexus Multi Academy Trust, for children and young people with severe and complex needs. We are passionate about providing the best quality of education and care for all our pupils and put them at the centre of everything we do.

The school was judged as 'Good' at the last Ofsted Inspection in April 2019: 

You have ensured that communication is a focus throughout the school; one parent told inspectors that her non-verbal child has ‘started to communicate’ due to the work of staff within the school. Pupils discuss their work with staff and have independent choice on the activities to support their learning.

Since the previous inspection, you have introduced a new personalised curriculum. This enables pupils to work to address their specific need and to ensure strong progress from their individual starting
