Challenge Partners

Nether Hall is part of the national 'Challenge Partners' network. Each year we receive a visit from senior leaders from other schools who are part of the network. These visits are a collaborative process that gives us the opportunity to have a rigorous and informed look at all aspects of our provision in school. We have found these visits to be hugely valuable in identifying our current strengths and areas that we wish to focus on and develop further.

In turn, members of the senior leadership team at Nether Hall have the opportunities to visit other schools as part of the network and bring back new ideas and best practice to Nether Hall School.

Nether Hall School currently provides education for pupils aged 4-19 with severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties. A significant number of pupils have additional and associated needs including; speech and language and communication and interaction difficulties. Almost all pupils who are admitted to Nether Hall School have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).

All our pupils are working below the level of the standardised tests.   Where appropriate, pupils are prepared for functional Entry level qualifications in KS5.  Where appropriate, Post 16 pupils follow Entry level certificate courses in Personal Progress and/or Personal Social Development. These are examined through ASDAN – an education and awarding organisation.
