Neil Shore & Mark Roson - Premier League 13.10.2016 - Attended school representing Premier League Safeguarding Team. Procedures inspected and satisfied they recah the required standards. Very impressed with Sunderland AFC training session. Staff very welcoming and friendly.
Parent - July 2016 - Words simply cannot express how grateful I am to you all for everything you have done for my daughter since she came to North View. The girl that entered your door is unrecognisable to the one that is leaving; I couldn't be more proud or grateful. North View is a truly unique and extremely special school, that offers children like my daughter a chance to be educated and nurtured in a supportive and understanding environment, without the pressures and intolerances of other schools. My daughter has been given back to me and you have all played a part in that. I only hope you realise what a truly amazing job you all do and how special you all are, to provide a child with a future is a wonderful gift. I know my daughter will embrace the gift you have given her and will use it to the very best of her ability.

Tom Bennett - Chief Government Behaviour Advisor 06.07.2016 - What a brilliant school - we need more like it.

T D (KidzRfit) 09.03.2016 - We would like to thank-you for hosting another Kidz R Fit Hoopstarz day. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, once again, and we hope everyone within school did too. Please pass our compliments to your children on their attitude and behaviour, both of which were impeccable in all sessions. They are a pleasure to teach, I hope one of them hula hoops for the talent show.


It was wonderful to see how much the children had remembered from the last time we were in, the sheer determination on some faces was a delight.

A M 09.02.2016 - Had a lovely morning looking around this great school, so calm and very friendly staff. Enjoyed meeting past pupils who had difficulties within mainstream, but who now are so settled and making super progress, a real success. Thank You

W S (VI/HI) 14.10.2015 - Today is my last day to come in and support transition of a pupil I have worked with for five years. Since coming to the school I have seen an unhappy child blossom and become confident and happy in coming to school, for me this is a wonderful thing to watch. I am myself very sad to say this is my last time, I have loved coming to the school. The school is warm and welcoming not only to the pupils but to visitors also. I love the way that every child is important to the school and with the caring ethos the school has that every individual child can achieve and secceed. I will miss my visits very much. The school is brilliant.

F S (Toby Henderson Trust ASD) 11.9.2015 - I visited a Y5 pupil during my visit and found everything  wonderful, happy, confident children in brilliant surroundings - it will be a pleasure to visit again!

Parent - (Talking about her son) A million miles away from the boy I used to have, I used to have to do eight journeys per day when he was in mainstream school, picking him up at dinner time; he was uncontrolable. I never used to hear any nice comments from mainstream school about my son. I have to say a huge part of my son becoming the boy he is today is down to North View Academy, what an amazing school. My life was a misery until he went there, when he started the school it changed all of our lives for the better, it was a miracle.

So a huge shout out to North View Academy and all the staff for the amazing job they all do.

Br Khadim - Local Mosque 06.07.2017 - It was an absolute pleasure to host the visit. Out of the hundreds of schools we have had visit the mosque yours had the greatest knowledge of Islam ever. Everyone was very well behaved and a real credit to the school, please visit again or if you wver want us to come out to the school and carry out the talk to the children there it would be a pleasure.
