Introducing our Head Teacher - Louise Reeks
For the last 17 years, Louise Reeks has supported children and young people with special educational needs (SEN). During this time, she has worked with some of the most incredible young people who have been able to share their insight into their challenges. This has enabled Louise to provide and direct a highly dynamic and responsive approach which benefits everyone and achieves positive outcomes.
Over the last two years, Louise has worked with young people and staff as the Head Teacher for one of Priory’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) schools.
Now the Head Teacher at Priory Lodge School, Louise is delighted to be working with such a knowledgeable and dedicated staff team. Together, they are wholly committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment, in which individuals are empowered to achieve their full potential.

Our autism strategy
At Priory Lodge School, we recognise the importance of putting autism at the centre of everything that we do. Now in 2020, we are emphasising our focus on strengths and differences, not deficits; and celebrating these. By focusing on each pupil’s aspirations and outcomes, our curriculum is specifically designed to meet the individual’s needs, so that they can overcome their barriers and build on their successes.
We have brought in an expert consultant to support our new leadership to drive forward autism-centred outcome-focused planning, and to further build on our latest Ofsted rating, which was 'Good' in May 2019.
At the very heart of our 2020 autism strategy is a strengths based, socially inclusive community, involving the young people, their families and school staff, enabling them to work together to empower individuals to reach their full potential. We know that by drawing on the strengths, knowledge and expertise of our wider community, we will provide a better service and improve outcomes.
