Shorefields School

Heads Welcome

Welcome to Shorefields School. We are a maintained day special school for 149 pupils in North East Essex aged 3 – 19. Our pupils have a wide variety of needs – Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) with Learning Difficulty (LD), Physical and Neurological Impairment (PNI) or Complex Communication, Sensory and Physical Needs.

We are very proud of our school and what we provide to our pupils, families and wider community.  Shorefields School is staffed by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers, assistants and therapists who work holistically to get to know every learner and build their education around each unique, individual pupil. We ensure that our pupils learn with an ethos of respect, fairness and care.

We are relentless in our pursuit for our pupil’s future to be as fulfilling and independent as possible. Our parents and families are crucial partners in the education we provide. We work with our families to support their needs to benefit their children and we are committed to ensuring our families are heard, valued, informed and reassured in all aspects relating to their children.
