A calm, safe and secure environment

Building confidence, self-worth, resilience and aspiration

Calder Lodge school provides children with a calm, safe, secure physical and psychological environment. Highly experienced staff ensure that pupil’s negative behaviours and mindset are confronted in a non-confrontational way. Personal responsibility is placed at the forefront of behavioural change, supporting children’s ownership of themselves and their actions. Using strong boundaries and modelling social norms, children are given space to grow. By building confidence, self-worth, resilience and aspiration, we help furnish children with the skill set to engage with academic and social learning for life.

Hello and welcome to Calder Lodge School.

Here you will find wonderfully unique children who have a range of needs including SEMH, ASD and all associated needs. Our vastly experienced staff base provides consistency and safe boundaries in which pupils feel settled, allowing them to be children. A rural backdrop and expansive varied curriculum helps pupils understand the social expectations of life but more importantly themselves. Pupils thrive in the calm and ordered operations of the school. High expectation and belief in the pupils allows them to believe in themselves, increasing engagement with learning across the academic and social spectrum.
