Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
We currently cater for children with a range of mild and moderate Special Educational Needs. As a small school we respond quickly to any additional needs required by a child. Although we do not have staff with additional qualifications in any specific areas, we do have experienced TAs and teachers who have often worked with pupils whose needs range from speech and language support to assisting children with physical/medical needs. Although we do not have any specific areas or classrooms for children with Special Educational Needs, we make the most of our large grounds as often as possible when supporting all our pupils. Please contact Mike Sitch (SENDCO) for further information at or on 01308 482410.
