"Growing, learning and working together to be the best we can"

Our Ethos Statement

“We treat everyone as an individual. In partnership with others we do our best to provide opportunities in which to learn, fulfil potential and develop life skills. Everyone can enjoy learning in a safe, secure and friendly environment. Everyone respects, cares for and supports each other”. Our ethos is a long standing and deeply embedded one and fits well with British Values: democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty; mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

We are a Community Special School for children and young people (aged 2-19) with learning difficulties and disabilities.

I am delighted to welcome you to the North West Leeds Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre!

We hope that you find this site helpful in finding out about the wonderful work of our talented staff that provide the very best education we can for our brilliant pupils – all of whom have special educational needs.

We are very proud of the fact that we are a large and diverse organisation. We have the specialist sites of Green Meadows and Penny Field and many of our pupils are based full-time in our mainstream partnership schools: Brudenell Primary School, Rawdon St Peters Primary School, Allerton High School, Benton Park High School and Guiseley High School. We have early years mainstream partnership provision at the Meadows Pre-School Nursery at Green Meadows.

We manage the city-wide support service for children and young people with autism (STARS). The service is accredited by the National Autistic Society and is the Autism Education Trust’s Training Hub for Yorkshire & Humberside.

We are commissioned by a collaboration of schools in the North West of Leeds (the Area Inclusion Partnership) to manage provision for Key Stage 3 students. This provision is for a fixed period with the aim of a successful return to mainstream learning. The students remain on the roll of their home school.

All of this means that we can meet the needs of pupils of all ages and with the full spectrum of learning difficulties/disabilities. We are a very inclusive organisation and rarely say ‘no’ to a pupil placement referral from the local authority if we have space.

Please contact us directly if you would like more information or to visit us – we are always keen to share with others what we do and get ideas from others too as this helps us learn. Our contact details are below. 

For parental and public queries please choose Option 4 when telephoning and ask for Ann Garnett. 

Thank you.
