Curriculum Overview

Thomas Bewick School provides education for pupils aged from 3 to 19 years. All of our pupils have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). We are passionate about delivering the best quality of education and care to all of our pupils and put them at the centre of everything we do.

Our school motto is ‘Growth Through Understanding’ and this underpins everything we do. We believe that growth occurs when each pupil is seen as an individual and when their own unique skills, interests and talents are nurtured and encouraged. We care very much about the success of every pupil but understand and respect that the learning journey and progress made by each of our pupils may look very different.

How do we want the world to see our children and young people?

All of our children and young people have something special to offer the world, so we want every single one of them to be valued, visible and fully included in our community and in the communities where they live. We understand that each one of our pupils will think and see the world differently, and this is something we want to be widely recognised, respected and celebrated.

What do we want for them?

We want all of our children and young people to be ‘the best they can be’. We want them to be confident and successful learners who are proud of their achievements. We want them to be safe, healthy and happy. We want all of our children and young people to have strong and influential voices – however they wish to communicate – and we want them to have the confidence and ability to make good choices and decisions. We ultimately want them to be as independent as possible and fully prepared for adulthood.
