To Ashgate Specialist Support School

A very warm welcome to the Ashgate Specialist Support Primary School’s website! We hope that you enjoy visiting our website and that it will provide you with a good insight into our vibrant, happy and successful school.

The curriculum and learning environment of each class are carefully created to provide appropriate and exciting learning opportunities for our children.

The staff at our school are caring, experienced and committed to meeting the individual needs of every child and to creating a happy, safe and secure environment.

Our wider curriculum helps children develop skills for learning and skills for life; we aim to support the children in developing their communication and core skills whilst enjoying a wide variety of extracurricular activities. We believe in empowering our children to grow in confidence and be as independent as possible.

We cater for children with Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) and Autism. 

We have developed a significant outreach role with schools in our two districts. Our outreach team offer advice to colleagues supporting children with SEN in a mainstream setting.

Parents / Carers: Please visit our individual class pages to see what your child will be doing this term and read their newsletters.
