Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

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 This may be in the form of classroom based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions using resources from within the school and from the support services within the Authority.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