SEND - Special Educational Needs & Disability

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer, and successfully deliver, a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children, irrespective of need. The school is very proud of its SEND team and what they are able to provide to all children.

The SEND department work 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 This may be in the form of classroom based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions using resources from within the school and from the support services within the County.

We maintain 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 Co-ordinator, Mrs Hawker.

We are proud of our ability to support children with a variety of special needs and have 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. We work closely with other agencies and organisations to ensure that we have the necessary expertise, and in some cases equipment, to manage the specific needs of individual pupils in our care.

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 & Disability please speak to our SEND Manager, Mrs Hawker, who will be happy to provide both information and support.

Our SEND policy is reviewed annually and is available to download below.

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.
