Inaura - an independent special school in Somerset

Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

Inaura School provides education for children who have additional learning needs such as the acquisition of numeracy and literacy skills. Most have failed to thrive in their previous educational settings; some have developmental disorders such as ASD/ Tourette's.

Inaura school was established in 2003, and has grown in size every year since. Currently, over 25 boys and girls aged from 8-18 years attend, nearly all of whom have statements of special educational needs. Almost all our young people come from Somerset and have their places funded by the local authority. 

We have over 30 teaching staff working at the school, all of whom are highly experienced in working with young people. Inaura has an individually tailored learning plan for every student at the school that matches their educational and development needs with the most appropriate staff member(s), allowing them to foster mutual trust and respect that enables and supports the best education experience. 

The school is located on a number of sites offering different learning environments, from a cosy cottage to a nature reserve (SSSI). The majority of our sites are in/around Lower Godney, near Wells, with some located in Burrowbridge near Taunton. 

Children do not come to Inaura school because they can't learn but so that they can.
