The South Downs Community Special School is a school that believes in working in partnership, where staff, parents and governors work together to provide the best possible learning experience for each child. Where parents feel valued and welcomed and where all adults care for the children and each other.

A school which is dynamic and innovative and where excellence is expected. A school at the heart of the community.

Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating learning environment where children recognise and achieve their best, so that they can make a positive contribution to society. We promote inclusion, equality and cultural diversity. Core British values are reflected in our school values. Our curriculum and assemblies are designed to help pupils be prepared for and appreciate life in modern Britain. We have a recognition of commitment from UNICEF for our whole school approach to children's rights.
