Our Vision

We believe that our pupils have an enormous amount of potential. We also believe that it is our responsibility to provide the right learning environment, create a sense of belonging and work in close partnership with pupils, carers and other leading professionals to ensure that all our pupils meet their full potential.

Our aim and vision is to consistently and passionately champion the rights of our pupils and to provide outstanding education and holistic care.

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is broad and balanced. It is aligned to the national curriculum for both primary and secondary aged pupils but it is also carefully designed to meet the individual needs of our pupils. Our curriculum is embedded into an autistic-friendly environment, and taught by staff with a profound understanding and empathy for the challenges facing many of our pupils.

Northcott School is a local authority maintained provision. All admissions are handled by the Local Authority after formal consultation with the Head Teacher. All places at the school are commissioned. All pupils attending the school have an EHC Plan and therefore will have undergone an extensive assessment before entering the school.
