SEND - Special educational needs and disability

The school prides itself in its ability to offer and successfully deliver a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children, irrespective of need

The SEN team very closely with all of the teaching staff and, as a result, are able 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 This may be in the form of classroom based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions using resources from within the school and from the support services within the Authority. The school maintains very close working relationships with children, staff, parents and other agencies. Indeed, partnership with parents is of the utmost importance. We encourage parents to discuss progress regularly with class teachers and with the Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Georgina Birkett.

The school is proud of its ability to support children with a variety of special needs and has taken steps to ensure that all children are treated equally. As a result the school is suitably equipped to deal with a wide range of individual needs. The school and the governing body regularly review its provision for children with special needs and ensure that its 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 SEN Manager, who will be happy to provide both information and support.

We have tried to gather together some information that might be of use to you if your child has any Special Educational Needs. If you are aware of any other useful websites please let us know and we will try to include a link to them.
