All schools in the Redcar and Cleveland School Alliance are committed to and adopt a similar
approach to meeting the needs of all children including those with special educational needs.
There is a shared expectation that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community. Schools within the Teaching School Alliance benefit from access to the Green Gates Early Intervention Unit and the expertise offered by Kirkleatham Special School and Dormanstown Learning Support Base.

Alliance Schools are inclusive and may offer the following range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and emotional health problems or sensory or physical needs.

The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need following thorough
assessment by internal or external agencies. It is designed to promote pupils working towards
becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation. Below is the
