Northfield is a special school for pupils with specific difficulties; pupils are placed here because they have social, emotional and mental health difficulties that prevent them from making good progress in a mainstream setting. In general, the behaviour of our pupils is good and is always well managed by our staff. However, individual pupils can be challenging at times and you will need to be robust and resilient when this occurs. 

This is a small and highly specialist school with loyal and dedicated staff. We are proud of our school and of the education and opportunities that we provide for our pupils. 

Application Procedure

Northfield School and the Local Authority are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.
