Welcome to our school

Dear Parents and Carers,

The information that you will find on the following pages will tell you a lot more about our school. Our core purpose is to meet the needs of primary aged pupils who have a wide range of complex learning needs.

For further information please contact the reception and the Head Teacher will be happy to discuss the school with you and arrange a visit if required.

Debby Gooderham | Headteacher

What we do

Our primary aim is to enable each individual, irrespective of their special need, to develop to their full potential.
We value an education which encourages children to grow in confidence and become as independent as possible within a positive, secure, safe and caring environment.

Teaching staff work closely with Therapy Services – especially Speech and Language Therapy; Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy. These programmes are an integral part of the child’s daily activity.

Would you like to be a Parent Governor?

Shepherds Down School has always aimed for a partnership with parents. One of the most significant ways you can help in promoting this aim is to volunteer to be a parent governor. The governing body's main tasks are to support the school, ensure that pupils receive high quality education and plan for future development and improvement.

Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community.

If you feel you are such a person we would love to hear from you. Please contact Trudy in the school office if you are at all interested.
