Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

We are an inclusive school and we pride ourselves on being able to provide all children with a full and varied curriculum that accommodates all their needs.  For the majority of the time the children will work within their classroom, with a well differentiated curriculum, although at times children benefit from smaller intervention groups, or one to one work in quieter places in school.

This year Mrs Dart will be working on a Tuesday and Wednesday specifically to support children who may need a little extra help.

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s needs or progress please pop in for a chat with either your child’s class teacher or our SENCO, Mrs Pooley.
