Cleeve Meadow School

Cleeve Meadow School is a partner school of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) who offer a bespoke training programme in both secondary (11-16) and primary (5-11) school-based initial teacher training. Applicants can gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the option to study for a Distance Learning Postgraduate Certificate in Education (DLPGCE) with Masters' credits.

Cleeve Meadow School is a special free school which provides highly specialised education for students who have moderate learning difficulties with associated additional needs including Autism, ADHD, speech, language and communication difficulties, and sensory impairments.

The school is particularly distinctive from existing local provision as it will work in dual partnership with its co-located mainstream school, Cleeve Park, wherever possible to maximise inclusivity of SEN students to mainstream education and providing access to mainstream teaching and shared facilities.
