Heltwate School is a co-educational special school for children and young people aged 5 to 19 years with Moderate to Severe learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Condition and many additional medical needs.
The school roll has increased over the last few years and currently we have almost 170 pupils, all with an Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC) or Statement of Special Education Need.
Admission to Heltwate School takes place after a full multi professional assessment of the child. Parent involvement in the process is imperative and we encourage visits to the school.
The Local Authority is the admitting authority and will liaise with the school with each pupils referral or application. To see the Local Offer, please follow this link https://www.peterborough.gov.uk/residents/special-educational-needs/local-offer/
