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.

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, Miss Swarbrick.
