About this cause
We are a special school based on the outskirts of Morpeth. The students are our community. They travel from all over Northumberland to attend our school. The students all have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and are aged from 5-18.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The majority of our students were at home during lockdown. They have been seriously missing the school environment and daily routine. Not seeing their peers will have had a big impact on their mental health. Staff from school have given all the students a weekly phone call, but it's not enough. They needed to be back in the building.
