Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND)

Some of our children have particular learning and assessment requirements that necessitate particular action by the school. These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs. Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.

Such children may need additional or different provision from that given to other children of the same age. When required we can call upon some expert services to support our work in school. These services include Occupational Therapists, Behaviour Support, Educational Psychologists and Speech Therapy.

Our Special Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Nicola Dowle. She may be contacted through the School Office.

Our School's Offer in support of pupils with SEND

As part of the 'Children's and Families Act 2014' every provider for additional needs is required to give a summary of what it can offer to help support and care for pupils that may require additional support in school. This is known as the 'SEND Information Report'.

Please click and download the link below for details of what we offer as a school and further details about who best to contact if you have any further queries or questions.
