Lochies is a non-denominational school for pupils aged between 3- 12 who have severe and complex additional support needs.
There is a small nursery provision which offers places only to children who have severe and complex physical additional support needs. We share the school campus with Deerpark Primary School.
There are 6 classrooms in addition to a range of facilities including a sensory room, soft play, therapy room and general purpose room which is fitted with kitchen facilities for the children and staff to have sensory cookery sessions.
Lochies shares a large gym and dining hall with Deerpark Primary too. Outside the children have a play area which is secured by a perimeter fence and beyond this there is a large grassed area which has a small adventure playground, sandpit and football/basketball area.
We have a headteacher, class teachers, a support worker, a home school liaison officer, learning assistants and an administrator in the school to support our learners.
We work closely with our NHS partners, we have speech and language therapists, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and a school nurse all working part time in the school to support our children, staff, parents and carers.
