Welcome to Middleton School
With a capacity for approximately 80 children, we cater for pupils from 4 – 11 years with a wide range of needs including autism, speech, language and communication needs and a variety of other challenges.
The pupils come from the whole of East Hertfordshire, from Bishops Stortford to Waltham Cross. All pupils at Middleton have an Education Health Care Plan.
Our school offers advice support and training to local mainstream schools as part of Hertfordshire’s response to inclusion. This service is called Outreach.
Middleton School will provide:
A safe, happy, fun and secure environment in which adults and children learn through their own experiences and develop their individual interests and strengths;
A supportive partnership with parents/carers which encourages positive involvement in all aspects of their child’s development and effective management of their child’s particular special needs;
A full and balanced curriculum appropriate for every child’s needs enabling each individual to develop their potential;
An environment in which each member of the school community feels confident enough to take risks and recognise that making mistakes is implicit in the learning process.
Middleton Will develop in children:
Independence, self-confidence, self-esteem and lively, imaginative and enquiring minds;
Understanding, tolerance, respect and empathy for social, moral, spiritual and cultural diversity, ethnicity, gender and sexuality;
Self awareness, social skills, a set of moral values, internal discipline, the ability to know what is right and what is wrong and the understanding that rules and laws protect us and keep us safe;
Questioning, thinking and problem solving skills;
The necessary life skills, understanding and knowledge for each key stage within school which will eventually be relevant to transitions, adult life, employment and the wider world.
