Outreach Support

Outreach Offer to Middlesbrough Schools and Pupils

Who We Are

Holmwood School is a primary school for children with a wide range of special needs. It caters for children from reception age to the end of Year 6. Holmwood specialises in educating children with challenging behaviour. We would like our Outreach Team to support as many primary schools as possible. Our Outreach team consists of a senior specialist outreach worker and members of our SLT.

The KS1 Support Centre

The provision was developed in partnership between Holmwood School and SEN & Vulnerable Learners Services of Middlesbrough Local Authority. The Support Centre intendeds to complement existing provision not intended to replace existing SEN provision or procedures. The main aim of this development is to provide additional capacity to support pupils with additional needs. As part of this development, via advice, Holmwood School will support initiatives intended to help Mainstream settings manage challenging behaviours, which sometimes emerge across a wide and diverse population.  Through placement opportunities plus the advice and support for staff, it is hoped that this development will help build capacity for not only a support place at Holmwood School, but also the sharing of expertise and good practice to enable Mainstream settings to meet the needs of their diverse population.


The objective of the Support Centre is to develop a pupil academically, socially and emotionally which would allow them to transfer these skills to become successful within an appropriate provision.

Number of Places

Capacity of the Support Centre will be 10 full-time equivalents across KS1.  Each placement is will be assessed after 10 weeks to discuss the future steps.  The review process will be arranged by Holmwood School with the primary school.
