Welcome to our website, which we hope you find interesting and informative.


Croft Community School opened in 2015 in a newly upgraded building.  We are a local authority school, for young people with moderate learning difficulties and or Autism Spectrum Conditions.  Our pupils attend from across North Durham, with a number from further afield.


Today, Croft Community School offers a diverse and enriched curriculum for over 130 pupils, supported by a wide range of accreditation opportunities.  There are a number of different class models which ensure that individual pupils' learning needs are met.  This is supported by a strong ethos of inclusion and high expectations of learning and behaviour.  Details of each subject and our exam and accreditation results can be found in the 'Curriculum and Achievement' Section.


We endeavour to work in partnership with parents and professionals to create a positive learning experience for every pupil.  In the 'Parents' section of the site you will find essential information about school, local services and copies of any letters sent home.  The dinner menus are also in the parents section and our catering staff will be happy to speak to you about your child's dietary needs.  Families can find additional information about social events and fundraising organised by Friends of Croft Community School.


In the 'Pupils' section, you will find links to learning websites which will help to support learning at home.  Please ask for our homework policy if you would like more information.  Statutory policies and procedures can be found in the 'About us' section, which also includes information about the pupil premium, Y7 catch up grant, school aims and vision and ethos statement.


We hope you enjoy browsing our website. 


We also have a Facebook group which can be found by logging into your Facebook profile and typing Croft Community School into the search bar.  Scroll through blue tabs to groups and you should find us there!  If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to contact the office who will be able to help.
