Dear Parents, Friends and Colleagues

The web site is in a number of sections covering most aspects of school life and should give you a flavour of what is available at the school. If you require any further information or would like an informal talk or visit, please feel free to contact the school. You are very welcome to come and meet the pupils and staff at work.

Artists Impression of New Autism Building

Newfield School is a multi-faith school maintained by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council that provides high quality specialist education for children and young people aged 2 - 19 years. We pride ourselves in meeting the needs of our pupils and students who have a wide range of learning difficulties, including autism, complex medical needs and sensory impairments. We achieve this in partnership with families and carers, providing advice and support, as we feel this is imperative.

‘The collective desire of all adults associated with the school to settle for nothing but the best is the added impetus behind the excellent achievement of pupils who are fortunate enough to attend Newfield School’ (Ofsted 2016)

The school is currently in an exciting stage of development as we are building a new specialist provision to meet the needs of 60 pupils with autism spectrum. Please click on the link image above for updates.

We promote a multi-disciplinary approach to the pupils’ education and care that includes a full-time health care team - physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists supporting, and working collaboratively with, a highly qualified and dedicated staff. We also liaise extensively with outside agencies to ensure all aspects of well-being for our children and young people’s lives are met.
