Sunfield works together
Sunfield adopts a ‘whole team’ approach. By working together, and with families and local authorities, we develop mutual trust, deepen our understanding of each child, and are responsive in our support of their care, education and life opportunities.
Sunfield dedicates resources
Sunfield’s on-site resources include specialist equipment, a sensory room, a state-of-the-art sensory integration suite and family accommodation, along with resident carers, teachers, psychologists, therapists and healthcare professionals.
Sunfield prioritises people
Our honest and open relationships with children and their families help children to feel safe, respected, confident and capable of achieving their best, and their families to feel understood, informed, supported and reassured.
Sunfield transforms lives
For over 80 years, we’ve been helping children to engage effectively with their learning and living experiences, so they develop the confidence to make a difference to their lives, their families and their community.
Sunfield is on the list of Secretary of State Approved Independent Special Institutions.
