Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability

We are proud to be an inclusive school. Our school provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all our children. We try to ensure that the Special Educational Needs of children are identified early. If a child has a Special Educational Need or Disability we aim to create an environment to meet that need.


Our school SENCO is Mrs Lucie Thornthwaite 


If you are worried about your child's progress in school, please speak to their class teacher in the first instance. However, Mrs Thornthwaite is able to discuss any worries or concerns you may have about your child's needs.
