School Description

Collingwood School and Media Arts College caters for young people with a range of learning difficulties. These are pupils who are on the autistic spectrum and/or have behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. There are also increasing numbers of pupils with a range of complex needs including speech, language and communication difficulties and those who have mental health issues. Pupils attend from across the county of Northumberland and some have experienced significant disruption in their education prior to joining the school. Most pupils are White British. There is an annual increase in numbers of pupils who join the school part way through the year rather than at the usual transfer time to school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils for whom the school receives pupil premium funding is similar to the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support pupils known to eligible for free school meals or those who are looked after by the local authority. Since the last inspection, the school has changed its designation to provided education for pupils from four to 16 years to two to 19 years. The school has extended its provision and now has its own sixth form. Despite having designation for nursery and reception education, there are currently no children of this age who attend and no children have attended this part of the school since the last inspection. Since the last inspection, the school has maintained its numerous national awards and has enhanced its Investors in People Award to Gold status.
