We have wheelchair access inside and out, a medical room with support equipment if needed, training in many areas which includes for example, Signalong, children with ASD, ADHD, children who are deaf, severe autism, epilepsy, diabetes, downs syndrome to name a few. We will always seek out training and resources to enable your child to attend and be safely included. We welcome support from outside agencies for instance Portage, HSS (hearing support service), VSS (vision support service), school nurse etc. All with your consent of course. We are trained in many SEND support areas so please contact us for specific information.
