Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)
Our SENDCo, Mrs Bray, can be contacted via calling the school office (01424 892486) or via firstname.lastname@example.org. Her working days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
As an inclusive school, we believe that every child is unique and brings their own strengths, experiences and qualities. We aim to meet the needs of all pupils, including our pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. In addition to 'high quality teaching', which is the entitlement for all children, we provide a range of adjustments to support children.
A child has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. Special educational provision is that which is “additional to or different from” that made generally for others of the same age.

Speech and Language
As part of our in-school intervention for speech and language difficulties, we use an online assessment and support programme called 'Speech Link'. They have just launched a parent portal, a new parent support site for children with speech and language difficulties. On the portal you will find activities to support both speech sound activities and receptive (listening) and expressive (talking) language activities. These activities can all be downloaded and used at home.
