Special Needs

 

What are Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?

A Special Educational Need and is a difficulty or barrier that affects a child's ability to learn and to access the curriculum.  A Disability is a long term health condition which causes a difficulty or barrier to learn or to access the curriculum.  We are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils and recognise that some of our children will need additional support.

 

If you have any further concerns regarding SEND, this Government document will offer further reading: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-guide-for-parents-and-carers

 

This document will inform you of the support we can offer your child. 

This information Report and Our School Offer outlines the support the school provides for children with additional needs and disabilities.
