School Description

This primary special school serves the whole of Hartlepool and provides for pupils with a very wide range of learning difficulties. Many pupils have severe or profound learning difficulties. A significant number also have additional difficulties and disabilities, including emotional, social and behavioural difficulties, autism and sensory impairment. A significant number of pupils also find it difficult to communicate effectively. Pupils attending the school join at various times throughout the school year. Just under one-third of the pupils are dual registered, attending Springwell on a placement from their primary schools for short or extended periods of time. Pupils attending the school are either currently undergoing assessment for specific needs or have an Educational Health and Care Plan. Early years provision is full time. The large majority of pupils are White British, with a small number from a diverse range of minority ethnic heritages. There is a high proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those eligible for support through the pupil premium funding, which provides support for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The school has gained many awards since the previous inspection, including the National Autistic Society’s accreditation, Investors in People and the Youth Sport Trust Gold Quality Mark. The school is part of the Hartlepool Teaching Schools Alliance and the North East Special Schools Teaching Partnership. The school’s outreach programme is used extensively and provides expertise and support to mainstream schools, their pupils and families.
