Service summary

Embleton View Independent Special School

Embleton View is an Independent Special School who offer full-time, short-term and long-term placements for students aged 11-16 years.

We deliver education provision for up to 16 students across two sites based in Darlington and Coundon. Embleton View offer person-centred packages of education and support for students, which includes therapeutic support.

We work with students who find themselves marginalised from conventional schools and other specialist schools because of their behaviour, vulnerability or other challenges. They may be permanently excluded or simply disengaged. All students have special educational needs (SEN), including social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH) and autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). Often, they have challenging home circumstances which can affect their capacity to engage and develop within conventional learning environments.

Some of the key features that students can experience at Embleton View are:

• maximum class size of five students with high levels of staff support
• a therapeutic approach underpinned by the Thrive Approach which is supported by our Therapeutic Partners
• a personalised curriculum to support students overcome their barriers to learning
