Parents & Carers

Parents & Carers


At times, meeting the needs of children with special educational needs can feel overwhelming and it’s sometimes hard to know which way to turn to find useful support, particularly if the child’s needs are complex.

At Sunningdale School we recognise the contribution that parents make to children’s education. By drawing on the experience of ourselves and our partners in working with children with multiple and profound learning needs, we have developed a range of programmes and activities which we hope will help parents and carers create rewarding educational experiences for their children.

Supporting parents and children through the lockdown

Over the past few weeks, Sunningdale School has been working hard to develop educational activities and online resources to support parents and the children of our school through the pandemic. These activities and resources are designed specifically for parents of, and children with, profound and multiple learning disabilities. To give you a flavour of the content, they include, for example, advice on regulation, activities to support emotional wellbeing, and songs and activities accompanied by Makaton signing. Please feel free to use these resources if you think they will be helpful at home. They can be found on our school YouTube Site
