We have an open door policy in school and welcome discussions about your thoughts on the provision offered for our pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. We’re available in the mornings during meet and greet time if you want to pass on information or a quick chat about your child. Alternatively, we are also available for longer appointments which can be made through the school office or email.

It is our passion to ensure that children with special educational needs or disabilities achieve their full potential in all areas of the curriculum and your child’s happiness and achievement is of great importance to us. We look forward to meeting you. To find out more have a look at our one page profiles. These profiles are something that we are now putting in place for many of our children with special educational needs or disabilities.
