The Meadows is a Durham County Council Special School and as such all referrals must be made through the Statutory SEND Casework Team, Children and Adults Services, Durham County Council, County Hall, Durham. Telephone:- 03000 265 878


All our students have Education Health Care plans relating to Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Students can join us in any year from year 7 to year 11 after a referral from the Special Educational Needs Panel. The school has places for 60 students.

The majority of our students live in Durham County but we accept referrals from nearby authorities when referred by their local SEN panel. The school is currently over-subscribed; should this happen there will be a waiting list for prospective students referred by the SEN panel. The maximum number of students in each year group is 8.

The Meadows is a maintained school funded by Durham County Council, which publishes its school admission arrangements and information about SEN. If you wish to enquire about a place at The Meadows, would like information about the referral and admissions process, or wish to refer a student, please contact the School.
