Welcome to the Roman Fields website. Roman Fields School supports young people who, prior to joining, have not experienced their full potential. All our young people have statements or EHC plans; the majority of our cohort have Autism as their primary need, others EBD and for a small minority a combination of both.
We strive to create an environment where each individual can flourish irrespective of their previous difficulties. We take a holistic approach to developing our youngsters from support for families to bespoke educational programmes through to supporting onward transition.
Our success is built on a genuine collaborative partnership between governors, staff, SEN professionals, parents/carers and our young people; a partnership that has high aspirations for all and places the youngsters in our care at the heart of every decision. Visitors to Roman Fields are immediately struck by the respectful, calm and considerate atmosphere around our site, which mirrors the pride and commitment both our staff and youngsters have in our community.
Roman Fields was rated by Ofsted as 'Good' with ‘Outstanding’ safeguarding in October 2014. Please read the report, as we feel it accurately reflects our school. The Oftsed visit followed an additional comprehensive review of our practice in April 2014, which resulted in the award of Autism Accreditation. The visiting team from NAS commented on, ‘the never give up ethos’ and ‘staff should be celebrated for their persistent positive approach’, which is welcomed by families.
There is a wealth of information on the website that I hope will give you a real flavour of our provision, the young people and the families we serve.
