Building Connection Before Correction


Rosewood Independent School is closed from Monday 18th January due to a high number of positive Covid 19 cases amongst staff across all bubbles.

We plan to reopen the school from Monday 25th January as a staggered return. We will discuss individual return dates with parents/carers throughout the week, as the staggered return dates are dependant on staffing.
We will be providing home learning throughout the school closure, and parents can find a copy of our remote learning information guide here. Each child will also be provided with a bespoke remote learning plan which we will review regularly.
Some children complained of headaches last week; we would advise that children with any symptoms are tested, as many staff presented as asymptomatic or without the ‘typical’ signs of Covid.

Rosewood Independent School is a trauma-informed setting specialising in 1:1 and very small group bespoke educational provision through mental health, trauma, and SEN interventions.

We are a co-educational school offering placements for 10 full time and 25 part time students in Northumberland. We offer placements to students aged between 6-16. As a bespoke educational provision, we welcome requests for homeschooling and alternative provision from out of county.

We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive learning environment in which children can develop positive relationships, improve academic performance, and be inspired to love learning.


We believe in building connection before correction.

We provide a nurturing environment in which we inspire children to achieve success to their highest potential.

Our individualised trauma-informed approach to teaching and learning allows us to encourage social and emotional growth and promote positive and respectful relationships and acceptance of others.


  • To develop confident, self assured, and able learners in a diverse and inclusive learning environment.
  • To share our passion and enthusiasm for education.
  • To provide a individualised learning experience for all children.
  • To support children to become responsible global citizens.
  • To develop independence, self-esteem, and resilience in pupils.
  • To encourage social and emotional growth through promoting positive relationships with adults and other children.
  • To create a welcoming and nurturing environment for all children and visitors.

All of our placements involve a high level of support beyond the classroom.

  • We work closely with Early Help, CYPS (Children & Young Person Service or equivalent), Primary Mental Health, allocated social workers, and any other professionals involved in the life of a child and their family.
  • We build positive and respectful relationships with parents/carers.
  • We attend Core Meetings for our students, and provide reports upon request.
  • As we have a qualified and experienced SENCO on our Senior Leadership Team, we support with EHCP (Education, Health, and Care Plan) applications, observations, and assessments.
  • We are also happy to help external professionals deliver support courses to hard-to-reach children who find engaging with services challenging.
  • We have experience supporting the Youth Offending Team, Educational Psychologists, Adolescent and Child Domestic Violence Teams, and SORTED (Substance Misuse Services).
