Services for children and young people in Northamptonshire (aged 0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities.

Kisimul School


Type of service:
Independent School
61 High Street, Kisimul School, Swinderby, Lincolnshire, LN6 9LU
Telephone number:
01522 866494
Service description:
Kisimul School is based across two sites in Lincolnshire, and meets the needs of learners with Severe Learning Difficulties, Autism, and Challenging Behaviour aged between 8-19 years of age.

We aim to:

- Ensure that the care and education provided each day is consistent and is offered by a trained, fully integrated multidisciplinary staff team.
- Devise individual education and care programmes which aim to address the challenging behaviours that so often block socialisation and learning.
- Provide a safe, secure and structured environment in which pupils can gain confidence and achieve their potential.
- Help pupils to learn ways in which to manage and control their own behaviour.
- Work with the pupils to help them to develop their own self-help skills, leading to a greater level of independence and improved self-esteem.
- Provide opportunities for our pupils to learn socialisation skills both within school and in the local community.
- Provide physical exercise, which not only improves health but also releases unrestrained energy.
- Provide musical activities both within and outside of the classroom, as this is often a successful medium for pupils with limited communication skills.
- Work closely with parents and key staff from placing authorities to ensure that everyone is working towards the same goal.
- Involve pupils' families in the life of the school by inviting them to reviews, social events and to help with fund raising.
- Provide regular detailed reports of pupils' progress and work together with all concerned to plan post-Kisimul School placements.
