Some of the children at Gibside are given the opportunity to experience working and socialising alongside peers at Kells Lane Primary School.


We have developed our classroom on-site at Kells Lane where the children continue to benefit from our specialist provision through teaching delivered by their Gibside staff team.


Our learners are given the opportunity to play and learn alongside the children at Kells Lane in break and lunch times. Where appropriate, some students join in occasional lessons with a mainstream class for a more focused Inclusion experience. Staff benefit from witnessing mainstream practice to ensure our learners are being pushed to reach their full potential. We also cascade specialist skills to encourage all learning needs to be met at Kells Lane.
