Supporting those with Additional Support Needs

Children who attend Lochies School have a range of severe, profound, multiple and complex additional support needs. All of our learners have a complex and unique profile of needs including a range of cognitive, communication and physical barriers to learning. Many also have significant health care needs and are supported to access a range of specialist therapy programmes and equipment. Our pupils are supported by our team of Teachers, Learning Assistants, Support Staff and Allied Health Professionals to ensure that they can fully access the specialist educational opportunities provided at Lochies.
