Declared open! Metro Mayor on ribbon-cutting duties at brand new Warmley special needs school

Dan Norris visits Neptune School opening

Metro Mayor Dan Norris officially opened a brand new school catering for children with special needs when he cut a ribbon at Neptune School, Warmley.

The 25-place school in Poplar Road is newly-built and will welcome learners aged seven to 14, helping address a shortage of places for children who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

Headteacher Rachel Lynch showed Mr Norris around the new school immediately after the ceremony.

Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Getting a new school off the ground must be a big challenge, so it was interesting to learn more about what things the Headteacher and her staff will be doing to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for the children right from day one.

“I know that helping the children feel rightly proud of all their achievements will be a central part of this new school’s philosophy, and it was good to find out more about the techniques staff will be using to boost the youngsters’ self-esteem.”
