At Sunnyside Academy we realise the important role that we play in preparing your child for adult life. We aim to teach all children basic skills in English and Mathematics whilst helping them to develop emotionally, physically and socially. We aim to do this in a happy and interesting way. We understand that children learn successfully when well-motivated. Success, enjoyment and interest all motivate children. When they experience success children feel good about themselves and gain the confidence to apply themselves to new learning. We give our children the opportunity to success in many different aspects of school life. Success is acknowledged and celebrated in many way. Any pupil identified as having additional needs is the shared responsibility of all staff, parents and then governing body. Out policies and procedures for SEND are followed by all members of staff. 

Sunnyside is proud to host three Local Authority specialist resource bases. A Higher Needs base (HNB) for up to 25 pupils (Y3-Y6) with identified learning needs, and up to 58 Sensory Base places for pupils Rec-Y6, who are Deaf or Hearing impaired and those who are Sight impaired and Severely Sight impaired. These places are applied for through the Local Authority and further information is enclosed within our Base Place Admissions policy. 

We provide access to a Breakfast Club (see prices below ) and work in partnership with external providers to offer wrap around care.
