Tweendykes is an LEA controlled day-school for Nursery, Primary and Secondary pupils who have special educational needs because of their learning difficulties. Pupils can be admitted at the beginning of the term when they are three years old and will usually have, or be in the process of obtaining, a Statement of Special Educational Needs. Admissions to the School are controlled by the Local Education Authority.

Who attends TweendykesPupils older then three can be admitted at any time during a term. If they are transferring from another school in the area then agreement with the Educational Psychologists is required before the place can be taken up. If the pupil is coming from outside our area then the pupil can be admitted on an assessment place subject to the Local Education Authority either taking on their Statement of Special Educational Needs from the other Authority or deciding to reassess and issue a new statement.

Pupils who attend Tweendykes School are offered a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum organised within the context of the National Curriculum, to promote greater personal and social independence. All pupils have an individual education plan describing short term objectives - these are shared with Parents on a termly basis.

As a small special school Tweendykes provides a supportive community where the needs of individual pupils are important and an emphasis is placed on the development of communication and inter-personal skills.

At the age of 16 our pupils leave the School to attend either a college based course or to attend a specialist centre for 16 -19 year olds.

It sometimes occurs that very young children, who are hard to assess accurately, having been at the School are assessed as being inappropriately placed. We will always discuss our assessments with Parents and encourage them to visit other schools which may offer a more appropriate education for the pupil. Transfers to other schools in the area do occur and we will do what we can to make the transfer as easy as possible for both parent and child.


Our curriculum is diverse and enrichedTweendykes School aims to provide a stimulating, challenging and enjoyable educational environment. Each pupil is encouraged to develop the knowledge, skills attitudes, confidence and self esteem necessary to meet the challenge of adult life. This is achieved through a curriculum that is both balanced and relevant to the needs of the individual pupil experiencing a wide range of learning difficulties.

The curriculum aims to prepare pupils for life after school and therefore it will in part focus on activities outside of school and relationships with the local community. By providing appropriate curricular and social opportunities in the wider community it is intended that a positive profile will be developed both for pupils and the School.
