A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Haskel School is an independent Jewish special school situated in Bensham, Gateshead. Haskel School provides specialist provision for boys and girls aged five to 19 years with a wide range of special education needs and/or disabilities including speech, language and communication needs and specific learning difficulties. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The school was last inspected in November 2014 when its overall effectiveness was judged to be outstanding. It moved to its current premises in 2015 following a material change application. Inspection report: Haskel School, 5–7 December 2017 Page 7 of 10 The school name translates to ‘Helping And Supporting Kids to Excel in Life’. The school aims ‘to provide education for children whose special educational needs cannot be met in a mainstream school, so that they can blossom into self-motivated productive members of British society in which their academic and social potential is developed’. The school provides support to other independent schools in the area. Pupils from Haskel School also spend time in other independent schools in the area. The school does not currently have a website. A new governing body is in the process of being formed and had its first formal meeting in October 2017.
