Our SEN team work hard to provide the best possible support for all pupils.  Our support staff offer intervention programs to give pupils the extra practice and reinforcement they need, this may be done in the pupils classroom in a 1:1 situation or in small groups withdrawn from the class.  Our teachers and support staff work closely with parents and outside agencies (e.g. speech and language therapists, physiotherapists etc) to ensure that all our pupils are equipped with the best possible strategies to enable them to be independent learners to the best of their ability.  

We highly value parents support as you have expert knowledge about your child's  needs.  You are also your child's best advocate and we are dedicated to building a positive relationship with you and your child.
