What do these Symbols mean?

You may see these symbols around the school or on our school site - no matter what your level of language or reading, everybody should have fair and equal access to information. At Fiveways School we use Symbols provided by "Widgit Software" to aid communcation with our pupils.

Welcome to Fiveways

A place where learning is fun and where children make amazing progress.  Everyone has different priorities, and all are equally valued

Communication and Interaction

As communication and interaction specialists we believe communication should be at the very heart of the educational process.  

Teaching School

We are proud to be one of the first Special Teaching schools.  We support a wide range of training for staff, parents and Governors.

Eye Gaze Technology

These high tech devices were designed to enable people with severe access difficulties to communicate using their eyes, to control the computer and their environment.

A Specialist environment

Our multisensory hydrotherapy pool offers a supportive environment to develop a confidence and enjoyment of water.


All aspects of Fiveways School life should be inclusive, recognising all pupils as individuals with individual needs.’
