About Lady Zia Wernher School

Lady Zia Wernher School is a special place of learning to enable pupil voice, curiosity, independence and happiness for today and tomorrow.

It is a maintained Luton community special school educating children in EYFS, KS1&2.

LZW School is on 2 sites.  The original site is in Stopsley, only 2 miles from the Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire border.  In September 2023 we expanded to a 2nd site on Strangers Way, Leagrave LU4 9ND, close to M1 junction 11 and L&D hospital. This is due to the growing numbers of children with SEND requiring special school places locally. When completed the site will have similar facilities to Stopsley site and will have the same curriculum offered. Children will be placed at either venue, key criteria will be reducing travel times and shorter distance to each site.

The school has been awarded an Outstanding Ofsted grade since 2007 (5 occasions), https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/provider/25/109745 the latest in November 2023. The report commends the quality of training opportunities for all staff resulting in pupils learning and wellbeing are at the heart of the schools work.

All children attending the school have severe or profound learning difficulties. Additional pupil needs can include physical, sensory and communication impairment, autistic spectrum disorder and/or complex medical needs. Pupils are either under assessment for or have an ECHP.

At Lady Zia Wernher School we aim to enable all to be the best they can be and to improve and impact lives. Our curriculum offers pupils engagement in differentiated teaching and learning supporting pupil progress and achievement. We celebrate success at all levels of education, equipping children for the next steps in life. A child’s family is fundamental to their progress and successful learning, this is most effective when the school, professionals and families work in partnership. 

At Lady Zia Wernher School we fully recognise our responsibility to the children of the school to give them the tools and grounding to help them become full members of their communities and the wider society. Everything we do hinges on giving the children independence to make choices and to express their voice. Schools have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

At Lady Zia Wernher School, we are committed to serving our local community and surrounding areas. We make the most of the opportunities our curriculum offers us to go out into the community for many of the learning activities. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the local community and the wider United Kingdom, and therefore those we work with. The school accepts admissions from pupils of all backgrounds, of all faiths or none. We follow our Equal Opportunities policy which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.

Lady Zia Wernher School offers excellent specialist facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, music room, movement room, story room and equipment. Along with these facilities a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, ensures individual children’s needs are met.

The school generally serves children who live within Luton and as a consequence many of the children arrive at school on a daily basis on buses.

Our website aims to guide parents, visitors and professionals to a good understanding of Lady Zia Wernher School, we hope you will get a good idea of who we are and what we offer.

If you share our values of teamwork, inclusion and innovation and have high expectations of what children can achieve we would like to hear from you.

We are very proud of our school and we encourage and welcome visits.  Please telephone for an appointment 01582 728705.
