Welcome to Newlands Hey School
Newlands Hey School is a small, friendly school for students who experience Autistic Spectrum Conditions. We provide a caring, stimulating and lively environment in order to engage our students in creative education.
We aim to provide our students with an education that will meet their individual intellectual, interpersonal and social needs, fostering independence and preparation for a full and active life. We support our students to begin to achieve and to be the best that they can in all areas of their development.
We strive to promote a positive, supportive and safe environment where our students can make progress and develop a sense of being valued. Beyond the classroom we believe that every opportunity should be given to our students to practise what they have learned in school in real life situations and settings.
We encourage our students to take an active part in the community by accessing local communal facilities and participating in regular trips to the wealth of sightseeing available in the Merseyside area.
We are committed to working closely with parents and carers to make sure our students get the best education possible whilst focusing on fostering self-esteem, mutual respect and trusting relationships.
We have a dedicated, experienced, enthusiastic and energetic teaching and learning support team who are passionate about enabling our students to be the best that they can be.
Please come and visit us and see us in action. We look forward to meeting you.
All young people attending our school follow personalised learning programmes and are supported on a minimum of a 1:1 staffing ratio in order to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that acknowledges the pupils’ individual needs.
Communication is an essential element of any young persons’ development. Our staff will always identify and use a childs’ individual and preferred means of communication when interacting with them.
What We Offer
Staff at our school will analyse the function of each pupils’ complex behaviours and seek to reduce the frequency and severity of such behaviour by the teaching of alternative and appropriate ways of achieving that function.
