Broomfield SILC

Investing in Individuals - Transforming lives


Welcome to Broomfield

Welcome to our school. We are an all-age generic special school serving South Leeds. We cater for a wide range of learning needs from moderate learning difficulties; severe learning difficulties; complex and multiple learning needs to Asperger’s and Autism. Some students have additional needs – physical; medical; speech and language; visual, hearing or sensory impairment. 

Many pupils are based on our main Broomfield site and in addition some within our mainstream partnership sites - Windmill Music Federation and Rodillian Academy, where opportunities for mainstream inclusion are maximised, if appropriate.

Our motto is ‘Investing in Individuals, Transforming Lives’ reflected in our aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating school environment in which all pupils are encouraged to adopt a healthy lifestyle and feel happy, safe and secure. Our pupils demonstrate a strong sense of community and fairness for all. We endeavour to help our pupils take their place in society and be tolerant, understanding and respectful of the rights of others.

Message from the Head Teacher

Our school is for young people aged 2-19 and we support over 200 pupils with a wide range of learning needs from moderate learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, complex and multiple learning needs and Autism. Some students have additional needs including physical, medical, speech and language, visual, hearing or sensory impairment.  

Most of our pupils are based on our main site and we have two partnership provisions at Rodillian Academy and Windmill Music Federation Primary school where there are opportunities for personalised inclusion.   

 Broomfield SILC is a vibrant, happy and successful school where the needs of our learners are paramount.  All decisions are taken with the best interests of our pupils at the heart and we pride ourselves on providing learning experiences that are creative, aspirational and truly personalised to each individual; enabling all our learners to achieve their full potential.  

 Our school values are intrinsic to all ways of working and we celebrate individual achievements, work hard to forge excellent relationships and provide opportunities for all our pupils to develop their strength of character and independence.  

 I am so proud of our entire school community for being so positive, resilient and for working together so well as a team.  As a result, our young people are safe, happy and are making progress towards their individualised targets.  

If you would like to arrange a visit to the school, please contact the school office and we will be delighted to show you around and provide further information.
