Local Offer / SEND
What do I do if I think my child may have Special Educational Needs?
If you have concerns regarding your child’s progress or wellbeing, this should first be discussed with your child’s class teacher. You may also wish to contact our SENDCO. Arrangements will be made for a meeting where school will listen carefully to concerns and put appropriate actions in place. This may involve observation and assessment in school, additional support within the classroom or referral to external agencies such as Educational Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Special Educational Needs Inclusion Team or the Area Inclusion Partnership. If there are other agencies already involved with your child when they start school, please let us know so that we can work with them to provide the best support for your child.
Executive SENDCo: Mrs Helen Kingdon

We work hard to quickly identify any barriers to learning and put support in place to help every child to succeed.
