Community and Charities


There is a strong link between the 5 schools for pupils with complex learning difficulties (known as CLiP schools), with the heads, governors and Outreach Managers all meeting regularly.


The school is part of the Colchester Teaching School Alliance and regularly has students on placement. We are also able to now access Continuing Professional Development from this group. We are linked with the North Essex Education Partnership (the academy chain of local secondary schools) and receive support from our secondary partners.

The school is also part of the NESP consortium, for Finance and Premises support. It also gives opportunities to work with mainstream primary colleagues and to take advantage of any economies of scale negotiated by this group.  

The school is part of the Essex Special Schools Education Trust.  The company was established with the aim of leading Special Educational Needs Innovation in Essex providing a vehicle for sharing expertise to ensure all ESSET Schools were supported to provide outstanding outcomes for the young people of Essex.

Thank you very much to the Wooden Spoon Charity for donating a wonderful £21,000 to the school to enable us to complete the Science room refurbishment. This money will benefit the school greatly as the pupils will now have a fit for purpose Science classroom with benches with electrical points, a non slip flooring and more efficient lighting. We are very much looking forward to using the finished classroom.

Thank you very much to the Variety Children's Charity for donating money to support residential trips this year and for their regular donations to the Friends of Kingswode Hoe.

Thank you very much to Happy Days charity for donating £2,100 to the school to support our residential trips this year.


Kingswode Hoe School has forged many links with the local community.


Our two ‘Variety Club’ minibuses are in constant use for either half or full day trips into the local community as well as longer visits. Throughout the year, pupils have opportunities to take part in residential trips including Norfolk, Suffolk and the Peak District. These are of great value to pupils and are thoroughly enjoyed by all who go. Thank you to the staff who give up their time to go with the pupils on the overnight visits.

A comment from a recent student who spent a couple of days with us as part of her teacher training:

I would like to thank you and all your staff, for welcoming me to your school on Monday and Tuesday this week.


I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and it was a privilege to take part in your World War 1 cross curricular day.  Your school has a fantastic atmosphere of calm, caring, positivity.  The strong relationships between staff and pupils was evident, particularly when pupils were off timetable. 


Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity

We have received a thank you from Great Ormond Street for the fundraising the Challenger Troop programme have carried out recently. They donated £72 for the hospital which was greatly received.  Well done to the pupils involved.
