SEND Information and Local Offer

Thomas Bewick School is a Foundation Special School in Newcastle upon Tyne for children and young people between three and nineteen years with autistic spectrum conditions. All pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Needs/ Education Health and Care Plan or are in the assessment process. They have a range of learning difficulties; some will require a high level of adult support to access the curriculum, whilst others achieve close to age-related expectations in some areas. The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum across Foundation Stage, Primary, Secondary and Post 16. Pupils are supported by autism specific strategies and approaches to meet their individual needs and learning styles. We currently have 156 pupils on roll.
