Realising the Vision
Summit Point School offers a unique learning opportunity for your neurodiverse child.
“Journeying together towards our Summit” describes our shared learning vision at SPS. Through identifying and embracing their personal challenges and working collaboratively, your child will finally begin to realise their extraordinary capabilities. This journey has never been an easy one for Specific Learning Differences (SLD) children, and Summit Point is so named in recognition of these challenges.
“It is not the mountain that we conquer, but ourselves.” Sir Edmund Hillary.
We are committed to the following objectives:
- Reignite the innate desire to learn.
- Teach a growth mindset.
- Foster passion to find out about the wider world.
- Develop self-belief to embrace their learning capabilities.
- Inspire the joy of language and reading.
Underlying this is the principle that education is not something that is ‘done to children’ but something that they themselves have created and have shared ownership of.
"We were desperate to help our son’s self-esteem and confidence. Enrolling him at Summit Point restored his belief in himself."
"Being encouraged to demonstrate his knowledge using educational technology has helped remove barriers to my child’s learning and made him less anxious about tests and assessment."
"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
