Sibling Support Group

We are delighted that OFSTED recognises the quality of teaching at School to be Outstanding and our staff and Governing Body are regularly looking at ways that we might improve the service that we offer to our pupils and their families.

Sibling support group get together around once a half term and it is an opportunity to meet other brothers and sisters of our pupils, to enjoy each other’s company and to realise that they are not the only person that had a brother or sister that attends our special school. The focus of these sessions is to bring the young people together to enjoy the company of each other and to hopefully develop new friendships and insights.

We either meet in school or we have held numerous outings, including visits to Prudhoe WaterWorld (Climbing Wall and swimming), to Laser Quasar, South Shields, to Vallum Farm, Wentworth Leisure Centre and the cinema.

The sessions are open to all brothers and sisters of our pupils in the 6 to 12 year age range but not to our pupils. If you would like more information about joining our group please email
