Each child is valued greatly as an individual and his or her achievements are given the merits they richly deserve.

Our vision is to provide an exceptional education for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) from Hartlepool and beyond. We are a Centre of Excellence for Primary SEND in Hartlepool by offering support and guidance to schools, families and the wider community.

We aim to create an environment, enriched through the use of the local community, which encourages personal growth and celebrates the achievements of all. We aim to develop a creative, skill-based curriculum that is fully differentiated and personalised to meet individual needs.
We aim to ensure each child enjoys and fully participates in the life of the school and makes a positive contribution to the community. We ensure that as our children develop, they become more confident and independent in their learning.
We work with parents and other agencies in a real partnership which facilitates the educational and social development of the children and provides a support network amongst parents.
