Sunningdale School is Sunderland’s only specialist school for children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties aged 2-11. We also have a very small non-statutory nursery provision for 2 and 3 year olds, known as Sunningdale Pre-school. We are also really proud to be one of Sunderland’s two Outstanding specialist schools.
Our vision for our pupils is encapsulated in the phrase, “Be More...”. We want every child to ‘be more’. That is, we want every child to be more in whatever way is important to them and their family.
We aim to be actively inclusive with our stakeholders and provide a range of workshops and training sessions through our training centre, the SENhub. Several of these are aimed at supporting parents, careers and families of children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties. If you would like to find out more about this or our bespoke specialist Initial Teacher Training course please follow the SENhub link in the menu at the top of this page.
