School Description

Hope Wood Academy provides education for pupils who have a range of SEN and/or disabilities, including moderate learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties, autism and sensory impairment. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The academy is a member of the Ascent Academies Trust. The academy does not have a local governing body. Members and trustees act as governors for the school. There has been significant change in the senior leadership of the school since the last Inspection report: Hope Wood Academy, 11–12 September 2018 Page 9 of 12 inspection. The headteacher and both of the deputy headteachers are new in post. There has been a considerable change in teaching staff since the last inspection. There are too few children in the early years to separately evaluate this aspect of the school’s provision. Occasionally, the school uses East Durham college as alternative provision.
