Special Education Needs

Bamburgh School is a special school in South Tyneside for pupils with medical conditions, physical disabilities as well as pupils who are emotionally vulnerable. The full range of national curriculum subjects are taught throughout the four key stages. The school has a commitment to inclusion and offers support to pupils currently in mainstream schools who would, without additional support from the LA, be pupils in Bamburgh School. Parents and teachers from mainstream schools are welcomed into Bamburgh to discuss relevant issues, and to exchange expertise with the staff. Medical staff, support staff and teachers are willing to share their knowledge and experience to help identify individual needs and to plan for any future educational provision. Members of Bamburgh staff are also willing to make visits to other schools for this purpose. In addition The Alnwick Unit is part of Bamburgh School and caters for children with Asperger's Syndrome or other conditions related to the higher functioning end of the autistic continuum.
