With learning at the heart of all we do, we ensure that we prepare our pupils for real-world learning and to succeed beyond education. Our school vision considers all children regardless of abilities and needs. We endeavour to provide a curriculum that is innovative and challenging for all learners, and embeds support strategies within lessons to ensure everyone can succeed and feel a sense of belonging.
We work hard to build good relationships with the parents and carers of all children, as well as with the other professionals who may be supporting individual children or us as a school.
Please read our SEND Information Report for full details of our SEND offer.
Should you need to make a complaint to the school please see the school Complaints policy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where do I start if I have a concern about my child?
To discuss concerns about your child’s education, first speak to your child’s class teacher if possible– they know your child best. This may lead to a discussion with the SENDCo, Miss Tosh.
We all work together for the best outcomes for our children.
What do I do if I am unhappy with the support my child receives?
If you are concerned about your child’s SEND, please arrange to speak to your child's class teacher. This can be arranged via the school office.
