Shepherds Down School

Achievement, Fulfilment, Enjoyment


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.

Whilst we would love to welcome you on site to view our school and see what we do in action, unfortunately this just isn’t possible at the moment. We will reinstate visits as soon as it is safe to do so. Meanwhile there is a “virtual” tour of the school available here.

School Attendance & Extreme Heat

School will still be open next week, there are no plans for us to close because of the extreme weather.

We are aware that there are a number of children in school who are unable to regulate their body temperatures or able to take on enough fluids during high temperatures.

If you feel your child will not be able to cope in school and you wish to keep them at home, we completely understand, but please let us know through the usual channels.

Please be reassured that whilst your child is in school we will be will be staying out of the sun, offering drinks on a frequent basis and generally doing everything we can to keep your child as safe as possible.
