Parents are welcome to contact school to arrange to visit where they will be given the opportunity to view school and to talk our admissions officer about our provision. For initial enquiries please contact Mrs Ann Young at 01670-516374
All new student admissions to our school must have an Education Health Care Plan or be undergoing the statutory process towards such. Northumberland County Council is the admissions authority for Collingwood School and parents interested in a place for their child should consult with the SEND Section at County Hall, Morpeth.
Collingwood School is not able to independently offer a place to any child/young person.
If Northumberland County Council agrees to offer a child/young person a place at a specialist provision, the SEND team will contact Collingwood with the relevant paperwork to enquire if we are able to offer a place.
Prior to a child/young person starting a placement we will endeavour to visit them either, in their pre-school setting or at their current school. It is usual practice to have transition arrangements in place whereby school staff visit current settings and the child/young person enjoys some initial pre-planning, transition sessions with us to support a smooth start to school.
