Sports Day 2019
On the 19th and 26th June, KTS pupil took part in Sports Days. The first sports day was a traditional one, with sporting activities on the school field and the second was a Sensory Sports Day, which involved a hunt for sensory activities around the school.
Both days were a success thanks to the effort and organisation of our staff, and both days were thoroughly enjoyed by pupils, staff and families.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for us. We are so grateful for your continued support.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve won a £250 grant from Venator’s Bright Ideas Fund to provide interactive science workshops by an external provider, in the next academic year.

One of our wonderful families are raising funds for outdoor play equipment for KTS Academy and we would be grateful if you can help them reach their modest target of £500.
"My two beautiful sons attend a very special school called KTS Academy which cares for and educates children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). They are massively underfunded, yet do a great job with limited resources. Sport and exercise are really important to me and my boys - they are very active little men, and I'd like to raise £500 to help the school buy some new outdoor equipment for all the kids to enjoy.
I am taking part in TOTAL WARRIOR with a team from Greg Newlands Fitness on 22nd June 2019, and would like you to sponsor me!"

KTS Careers Day
On the 7th March, we held our annual Careers Information Day at KTS+ and KTS3. The day was a huge success and engaged our young people in activities and experiences that will inform them about future options such as day services, education, jobs and careers.
We invited parents to the ‘information hub’ at KTS+, which enabled people from different services to provide guidance and advice to parents on courses, careers advice and benefits and student finance.
KTS would like to thank all of the providers who attended. It was hugely successful and informative for our families and staff. We hope to see you all again next year.
Inclusive Tees Valley Sports Event
Recently, some of our Primary pupils attended 'Inclusive Tees Valley Sports Event'.
All pupils took part in sports such as boccia, blanket volley ball, frisbee work, hula hooping and tennis. The pupils really enjoyed the day, learning how to play different sports and using different sports equipment.
Durham Vocal Festivals, Big Sing & Sign
In January, a group of pupils from our KTS2 & KTS3 choirs attended Durham Vocal Festivals, Big Sing & Sign. The event was lead by OBE Paul Whittaker and included different special schools from across the North East.
We took part in workshops throughout the morning, followed by a performance with a live band on the afternoon! Our pupils had great fun and really enjoyed getting involved, they were all excellent ambassadors for the school.
We now have a Facebook page to promote news and jobs vacancies, please give us a 'like' for the most up to date information from KTS.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to run a summer school in 2018/19.
This is due to the increasing complexity of needs of the children and the staffing and other resources required to ensure their safety.
