Insight is a Centre of Excellence (established 2012) and Specialist Primary School (established 2013) for blind and vision impaired students. It provides vision impaired students with the same opportunity as their sighted peers to excel academically, unlock their potential, and feel empowered to do things for themselves, whilst recognising and respecting their need and right to learn in different ways. Insight’s Centre of Excellence will be the “hub” of educational services for vision impaired students, regardless of where they live or go to school.
