Distington Community School Logo

Distington Community School is for boys and girls aged 3 - 11 years. We are very lucky to have a modern, purpose-built school with a computer suite, sports hall and an arts room/ kitchen. Our grounds include exciting areas for children to learn and play. These include a wood (planted by our children), hills, a pond and an adventure playground for your child to experience and enjoy.


Children will work in a variety of ways within each class and will also work for short times out of the class, in small groups and individually as the need arises. Children with special needs will have a special plan (Individual Education Plan) designed to their needs.


Where needed, specialist teachers will come into school for example, a hearing therapist. Parents of children with special needs will be kept informed of their child’s progress. Children identified with above average ability will also have individual programmes written for them, to support their advanced learning needs. Such abilities are identified throughout the curriculum for example, sporting and artistic talents are given equal importance as mathematical or linguistic flare. Simply, we will always aim to meet the needs of your child.

Local Offer Description

Distington Community School provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. 

We strive to support all children to enable them to achieve their best. We understand that children may have SEN throughout, or at any time during their school career.

Teachers take into account, in their planning and delivery of lessons, a child’s special educational need and the provision made therefore enables them to participate effectively in all curriculum and assessment activities, in addition to broader aspects of schools life. However, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets such as; outside agency support, 1:1 support or additional intervention sessions.
