What is SEND?
SEND is special educational needs or disability.
It means that your child has a need that requires additional or different support from the main provision already given in the classroom. For instance, despite trying a range of approaches in the classroom, your child may still have difficulty with an area of education and is significantly behind the expectations of their year group and that the school is only able to help them progress through extra support.
Or your child may have a physical barrier to learning, such as visual impairment, or a diagnosed condition which requires additional or different support.
What is a SENDCo?
SENDCo is a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator
Our SENDCO is Miss R Emery who works closely with our Inclusion Leader, Mrs A Smith. You can contact Miss Emery by phoning or emailing the school, visiting the main office to make an appointment or through the school’s Messenger service.
Here are links to school documents outlining how we support all pupils in school. All other school policies can be found on the School Policies tab. Special Educational Needs Support Plan Policy 2017
