This section of the website contains information about the range of specific needs of our children and how we support them to learn and make progress, including our teaching approaches, environment and facilities.
We pride ourselves on meeting our children and young people’s needs to a high standard and achieve this in partnership with families and carers, providing advice and support, as we feel this is imperative.
We promote a multi-disciplinary approach to the pupils’ education and care that includes a full-time health care team - physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists supporting, and working collaboratively with, a highly qualified and dedicated staff. We also liaise extensively with outside agencies to ensure all aspects of well-being for our children and young people’s lives are met.
Here you will find information about the specilist facilities and approaches that we implement to work with our very special people!
Supporting all pupils to find and develop a means of effectively communicating with others is a core focus of our work at Newfield.
Working with therapists to enable our children to unlock and maximise their physical potential, we strive to create independent individuals.
At Newfield we try to understand each of our learners sensory differences and strive to help them find ways that they can play and learn to the best of their ability.
A wide range of sensory teaching approaches are used to support children and young people to engage with learning by enriching the curriculum to make it more accessible.
Environment & Facilities
Newfield is a purpose built special school housing many specialist features to enhance the curriculum and provide a wonderful learning environment for our children and young people.
Emotional Regulation & Support
Our learners all have different emotional support needs and we tailor our approaches to each individual to ensure that they learn to self-regulate in order to be happy and ready to learn.
