With the designation of National Leader of Education, Yewstock is a National Support School, which means that a range of expert and experienced staff can offer support, advice and guidance to professional colleagues in other schools. We have Teachers, Teaching Assistants, administration and finance staff who offer a range of skills and knowledge in SEN, inclusion, outreach, sensory support and autism spectrum conditions, to name but a few. If you are a school requiring support then please contact us.



We belong to the Teaching Alliance of Dorset Special Schools and through this we work with the other special schools to offer a range of school support and training. Please visit the TADSS website via the link in the Community section.
