It’s my great pleasure to welcome you to our new school website. I hope that you find the information you’re looking for and if not, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. The Dales is a specialist primary school based on two sites: Blythdale in Blyth and Ashdale in Ashington. We provide education for children with a variety of additional needs that may not otherwise be met in a mainstream setting. We set out to make a difference to the learning, wellbeing and future life chances of children with additional needs. The school cultivates a safe and caring environment where children can thrive and have the opportunity to meet their full potential.

The dedication and commitment of our staff team and Governing Body creates an outstanding professional purposefulness that sustains our high standards. Our staff team of highly skilled practitioners work with children in small groups with a high ratio of adults to children and use bespoke interventions and strategies to ensure that learning is both accessible and meaningful. Staff work together to meet the individual needs of every pupil and we believe we can unlock each child’s potential and support progress and achievement. If, after browsing our website, you believe we could be the right school for your child, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to show you more of the work we do.
