Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Our school endeavors to provide maximum inclusion for all children whilst meeting their individual needs. If a child is experiencing difficulties with their learning, the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator works closely with parents, staff and outside agencies, to provide carefully planned support. This is in accordance with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.
The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator is:
Mrs Shelley Smith
The governor with responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is:
Mrs Tess Phillips
If you would like any further information, Mrs Smith can be contacted via email or via our school administrators:
