We believe in a fully inclusive approach to supporting pupils with additional needs.

This means working in partnership with parents or carers to support children in

whatever way we can to enable them to achieve their potential.

We follow a graduated response to need from initial conversations with the class

teacher, targeted class support, to more specific personalised support, including

comprehensive analysis of any assessments and observations made by external

agencies. All actions are always taken through initial informal discussion with

parents/carers, and more in depth parent meetings and/or reviews as part of our

SEND arrangements in school.

If you would like to discuss your child's needs at any time, please do not hesitate 

to contact Miss Elaine Beatt (INCo) who will be pleased to meet with you.
