From September 2014, all schools are expected to publish information about their provision for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
This includes the ‘Local Offer’, which helps parents/carers understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. It should help them understand how the system works, and how the local authority, local area and the school will support both the child and the family.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCO) is Mrs Sharpe.
You can read details of our special needs provision and local offer below:
You can also read our SEN Policy in our Policies section of this website.
