SENDAT is delighted that from 1st November 2019 Stone Lodge academy Ipswich will be joining the SENDAT Trust.

You can find out more about Stone Lodge on their website www.stonelodge.sendat.academy 


Today Stone Lodge have joined the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Academy Trust (SENDAT). SENDAT is based at Priory School in Bury St Edmunds. The Trust was set up to develop a range of specialist provisions across Suffolk and its border counties. SENDAT’s aim is to support young people to achieve their potential and develop as well-rounded individuals, who can go forward into their adult lives, prepared for the work environment and capable of being independent and productive citizens.

Stone Lodge is very excited about joining the trust. We believe that SENDAT will enable us to continue to improve the quality of education of education, share best practice and work in partnership across the provisions, to provide the very best teaching and learning for our young people.

Stone Lodge will continue to work with our students, their families and staff to provide the very best outcomes for all the young people in school. Joining SENDAT will support the development and aspirations of creating an even better learning environment for our children.

This is a time of change for all of us at Stone Lodge which I believe will help provide many great opportunities and amazing experiences that will benefit us all.

The main school website has moved to www.stonelodge.sendat.academy and staff email address have changed, but all the old ones should still work.


Yours sincerely

The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) is a way of working with families that puts your needs at the heart of decisions made about you and your children.

The common assessment process will usually be started because something is worrying you about your child, or is worrying the people who are working with you.

Taking part in the process will help you work with people such as teachers, health staff or other lead professionals to gather, understand and share information about what is happening in your family's life.

The aim is that once all the conversations have taken place, the needs of your family will be at the heart of any decisions made about accessing further information or support in order to get to the right solutions for your child.

SENDAT can support you with a CAF, but this is a Suffolk County programme for more information please go to the Suffolk County council CAF pages click here or talke with out family support team.
