Sandside Lodge is a special school catering for pupils aged between two and nineteen who have a statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care Plan.
All our pupils have learning difficulties and many have additional and complex needs including such as autism, physical disabilities and sensory impairments.
We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School Level 2.
The school is supported by
- a physiotherapist
- speech therapist
- a school nurse.
- an occupational therapist and
- social care teams as required
Key influences in the school are promoting pupils independence and learning in the community. Teaching and learning takes place both in the school building and in the local community with the pupils being taught that they have a role, a place and a voice in all things they do.
"For many parents the decision to move their child to Sandside Lodge, while one of the hardest, has in hindsight been one of their best."
"From their very first days at Sandside Lodge students 'blossom'"
