SEND

All children are valued, respected and welcomed at our school, whatever their additional educational needs may be. We support children’s learning and aim to ensure they are fully included in all school activities.

As a school we follow the Government’s Code of Practice to identify, assess and support pupils with special educational needs. Through the use of In Class Provision Plans, we provide support that is tailored to meet each individual pupil’s needs. Support may be in the classroom in a small group or through separate activities. Support is delivered by a skilled team of teachers and learning support assistants.

For further information please see our Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) policy on our policies page.
