Welcome to the North West SILC
Michael Purches Principal
I am delighted to welcome you to the North West Leeds Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre!
We hope that you find this site helpful in finding out about the wonderful work of our talented staff that provide the very best education we can for our brilliant pupils – all of whom have special educational needs.
We are very proud of the fact that we are a large and diverse organisation. We have the specialist sites of Green Meadows and Penny Field and many of our pupils are based full-time in our mainstream partnership schools: Brudenell Primary School, Rawdon St Peters Primary School, Allerton High School, Benton Park High School and Guiseley High School. We have excellent early years provision at the Meadows Early Education Centre at Green Meadows. We also manage the city-wide autism support service (STARS).
All of this means that we can meet the needs of pupils of all ages and with the full spectrum of learning difficulties/disabilities. We are a very inclusive organisation and rarely say ‘no’ to a pupil placement referral from the local authority.
Please contact us directly if you would like more information or to visit us – we are always keen to share with others what we do and get ideas from others too as this helps us learn.
Michael K. Purches
