Thank the school

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs
Lonsdale School was opened in 1971, as a purpose built school for pupils with physical and neurological impairments. Our mission is to achieve excellence in meeting the needs of every individual at Lonsdale. Each pupil has unique and sometimes complex needs. In addition to a physical or neurological impairment, pupils may have sensory loss, a medical condition or associated difficulty in learning. To achieve our mission the partnership between home and school is of vital importance. We aim: •To provide and develop the best education and care, matched to the physical, communication and development needs of every individual; •To provide a secure environment and develop the independence and autonomy of every individual; •To teach pupils and support families to apply their rights and entitlement positively as citizens and demonstrate respect and value of others; •To develop the confidence, independence, self worth, spiritual and moral values of each individual
