SEND Special Educational Needs and Disability
We pride ourselves in our ability to offer and successfully deliver a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children. We work hard to support children with a wide range of academic, physical and social needs. This may be in the form of classroom based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions using resources from within the school and from the support services within the local authority.
The school maintains very close working relationships with children, staff, parents and other agencies. We consider our partnership with parents to be of the utmost importance. We encourage parents to discuss progress regularly with class teachers and with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). The school and the governing body regularly review its provision for children with special needs and ensure that staff are well prepared and trained. If you would like to discuss any issue regarding your child and Special Educational Needs please speak to our SENCO Mrs Corry who will be happy to provide both information and support.
