1. What do we mean by the SEN Information Report?


  • By law all schools have to provide details about how they will support a child with special needs. This is the SEN Information Report (local offer).

  • Sunningdale School is a special school educating pupils with profound, multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), severe learning difficulties (SLD). Many of our children have a diagnosis of autism and some have physical and medical needs. 

  • All children attending Sunningdale must have a ‘Statement of Special Educational Needs’ or an Education Health Care Plan.

  • Sunningdale School’s SEN Information Report will include details of the support we will provide for your child. This will relate to the advice within the ‘Statement’ or Education, Health Care Plan’ (EHCP)

  • Sunningdale School leads two Outreach Services for the City of Sunderland. They are ‘Portage’ and the ‘Language and Learning Partnership’
