Fortuna is a purpose built, Local Education Authority special school that caters for primary aged children whose emotional and behavioural difficulties have prevented their educational needs being met in a mainstream school.
We strongly believe in the power of the expressive arts; dance, drama, music and art in raising the children’s self-awareness and esteem and in allowing them alternative means of learning about themselves and expressing their feelings. As a school we follow the nurture curriculum which:
- Recognises that the children may be emotionally and socially functioning as much younger children and need to consolidate their early learning experiences within school.
- Enables children to acquire the necessary skills to play and interact constructively within their peer group.
- Meets the developmental needs of the “whole” child.
