Inaura School provides education for boys and girls 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.
Currently, 21 boys and two girls attend aged between 10 and 18 years and nearly all have statements of special educational needs. Almost all young people come from Somerset and have their places funded by their local authority. The school is located on six sites offering different environments, from a cosy cottage to a nature reserve (SSSI).
Centres are in Burrowbridge, near Taunton, in Somerset and the village of Lower Godney near Glastonbury.
The school seeks to ‘develop well-motivated and self-regulated individuals’ by removing barriers to learning and by providing an education tailored to each pupil’s individual needs.
