Welcome to Newfield School and Specialist College page
This area is dedicated to the work that we do to support our community partners.
As a Specialist College we are very proud of the links that we have with our four community partners:
Local Authority Behaviour Services, Sefton Women’s and Children’s Aid (SWACA), Higher Education (Liverpool Hope University Liverpool Hope and Edge Hill University Edge Hill) and most importantly, our mums, dads and carers (and the agencies that support them such as Parent Partnership and Sefton Carers Centre) It is really rewarding working together with our partners to develop a greater understanding of the nature of our pupils.
We could not have a Community Partner page without including Primark. Primark do so much for our school and take the time to come to visit at every opportunity – we are unbelivably lucky that an international company like Primark is associated with Newfield School and although this article does not do them justice this is because they want no recognition for what they do!
We have added another community partner this year, namely Higher Education, as we are keen to work more closely with student teachers so as to deepen their understanding of pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties. We will still continue to work closely with The King’s Church as the voluntary work carried out by pupils at the church has proved to be very valuable indeed.
During our careers work, we have established links to Merseytravel and Microsoft through use of Inspiring the Future volunteers from these companies, who have kindly worked with our pupils to provide advice on job interviews, applications and careers advice, and some have offered extended work experience for some of our pupils, which is greatly appreciated
Newfield School has been awarded the FULL International Schools Award from the British Council.
We were awarded a special International School Award Logo for us to use on school literature, stationery and website.
Two pupils experienced a trip to the Battlefields in Autumn term 2015 to share research on local history surrounding World War 1
