Welcome to Saplings Special School Goresbridge WebsiteSaplings Special School for Children with Autism and Complex Needs, Goresbridge is a co-educational autism specific special school, providing high quality education for pupils with autism and complex needs. The school offers child-centred, autism specific education which draws on a range of evidence-based interventions. There are currently 12 students attending our school between the ages of 5 and 18. All students have a primary diagnosis of autism and a secondary diagnosis of a mild, moderate, or severe/profound learning disability. Some of our students may also have an additional diagnosis. We are one of only thirteen schools in Ireland with a full time Behaviour Analyst on staff. Our aim is to provide high quality educational support to students with a diagnosis of autism, assisting them to achieve their full potential and participate in their family and community life, through the provision of holistic evidence-based services, celebrating each individual’s dignity, uniqueness and right to an optimal education.
Donate to Our School
Since our school opened in 2011 we have been very lucky to have the support of Parents and members of our local community who have organized events and raised funds which directly support the children who attend Saplings Goresbridge. Donations and fundraising allow us to buy specialized equipment and resources for the children in our school which helps them reach their potential.
