Walworth is a day/residential school which caters for day/extended day and residential pupils dependent upon their needs, who have Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties. We provide a safe and welcoming learning environment for boys and girls between the ages of 4-11 years. We have 90 planned places. All children have a statement of Special Educational Needs and frequently children also experience difficulties in their lives beyond school.
The children in school have a wide and varied range of difficulties and needs which have prevented effective learning and personal development in a main stream setting. The majority of children on entering Walworth are underachieving academically, and many have failed to establish successful peer and adult relationships.
The school works with the full range of outside agencies across the authority and is committed to ensuring positive working relationships to best meet the pupil’s needs.
Staff and Governors are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers, and forge links with mainstream schools and the wider local community.
Walworth offers children opportunities to access a wide range of professional support in a specialist setting which helps them overcome their difficulties; and aims to help children make positive changes to enable them to fully develop their own potential. We have high expectations and constantly discuss and evaluate their progress.
As the school caters for the whole of the County Durham catchment area, the majority of children travel to school by taxi.
