AtThe Loddon School® we see the education and care of the young people as a close partnership between the parents, wider family, and the school. Our aim is to provide care which allows parents to enjoy being ‘Mum’ or ‘Dad’ to their child.

The Loddon School® has a calendar of events when families are encouraged to attend and have time and fun together as a whole family. Special picnics, sporting events, walks, and our very special Christmas concert allow families to share in special activities together.

Weekly, parents are encouraged to visit their child and can be supported by staff to have a local trip out or to use the facilities on school grounds together. Weekends are specially set out to facilitate family visits and a special family room and kitchen are available to enable families to have special ‘home’ time together.

What our Parents say:

“I have found staff extremely helpful and supportive to us as well as our child. Thank you.”

“We have been very pleased with the school and feel our experience and our child’s has been excellent. A dedicated team work hard and produce great results.”

“Absolutely fantastic place, people, environment. Well done.”

“I am very happy with the care and education my child receives here at Loddon. It’s provided the care he has needed and support as a family.”

“My child has made remarkable progress and is improving each day and I am quite hopeful for the future thanks to Loddon.”

“Please extend the age range to include 19-25 as I feel that all your good work may be undone during those very difficult years for young men. Lovely caring staff who help to guide the pupils to become balanced young people working towards integration in the big wide world.”

“Wish we had known Loddon six years ago, he smiles happily now and he is happy to return to Loddon.

“He likes the freedom and space and we feel pleased with his progress.”

“He has done so well since he came to Loddon, the staff are great and he loves the animals.”

“Amazed at her communication now, the school has made such a difference, and helps with any problems we have.”
