This area is dedicated to the work that we do to support schools in the local community.
We participate through our LISC programme to both receive and provide a quality assurance monitoring visit each year with another Sefton School. Last Year, we worked with Crosby High School AND Presfield to Quality Assure all areas of the Ofsted framework including Safeguarding.
This enables all schools to look at their own self-evaluation from an external viewpoint and ensure that the judgement and evidence are robust in preparation for any school inspections
We work with a range of schools across the Sefton area. The support that Newfield School provides to schools is varied. Likewise we welcome support from our partner schools to enhance or improve the work we do.
It is really rewarding working together to develop teaching strategies to support pupil’s behaviour.
When pupils are transitioning from a mainstream setting to Newfield School it is vital that the process is clear so pupils and their families feel safe and supported. We offer most pupils a transition period from their school liaising with teachers and external contacts.
Our reintegration project plays a major role in helping pupils to have positive experiences of lessons and activities in mainstream schools. Throughout the year, pupils have the opportunity to aim to transfer to a mainstream school on a full time basis or for part time modules, if their behaviours allow.
If you are interested in your child considering a reintegration opportunity, please get in touch with Mr Whelan who will be happy to chat with you regarding the reintegration process.
It is really rewarding working together with our partners to develop a greater understanding of the nature of our pupils.
Our pupils and families are supported by external organisations within the community. We are very grateful to have them support some of our vulnerable groups.
Twice Yearly Primark offers the school the chance to visit out of hours and allows us to spend in the region on £1000. Any pupil who has 95% attendance or above receive a ‘goody bag’ from Primark.
Lynn Higgins who runs a Sefton Community Hub in Seaforth provides termly food hampers to our families. These are sent out to our most vulnerable families who maybe reliant on food banks.
We are forever grateful for the community support that both of these businesses offer.
During our careers work, we have established links to Mersey travel Costa Coffee, local building firms, Police, Ford all who have kindly worked with our pupils to provide work experience, advice on job interviews, applications and their chosen careers. In some cases these businesses have offered extended work experience for some of our pupils, which is greatly appreciated.
This experience is invaluable to our pupils and enables them to make an informed decision about their chosen career programme.
