Our teachers are providing a range of blended learning materials. These can be accessed remotely on our Dojo and Showbie platforms and are both age and ability appropriate for your child. Both Dojo and Showbie provides pupils, carers and parents chance to talk with their teacher, have supervised class chat and get teacher feedback. Additional project resources can also be downloaded from the blended learning link below to encourage independence and pupils’ wider interests.
For those learning at home, please view our list of educational resources. These are relevant to children across the early years and school age range including those with special educational needs and disabilities. You can see our other Learning Resources here.

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.
