One of the biggest decisions a parent or carer has to make is to decide on a school for their child. We hope this prospectus will provide you with the necessary information as to why Pegasus School could be the right place for your child. Welcome to Pegasus School Pegasus School is situated in the village of Caldwell, five miles from Burton on Trent on the borders of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The School occupies a beautiful Georgian building in several acres of space which provides a safe and interesting environment in which to live and learn. We provide education and care for children and young people between the ages of 8 and 19 years. Children placed with us have a range and complexity of needs including:

‘ Parents and carers have positive views of the school. One parent said, ‘ My child feels safe, comfortable, well cared for, trusted and valued. I am very pleased with the progress they are making. ’
We have a multi - disciplinary team approach which includes Teachers, Therapists, Care Staff and Specialist Support Staff and you as parents and carers. This ensures that all areas of our students ’ Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC) are met. We are praised by Ofsted for our targeted and coordinated way of working which means students develop in all areas and means we meet our objective of increasing young peoples independence. The only way to be sure that a school is right for your child is to visit yourself. Please contact us to arrange to visit or to ask any further questions you may have.
