SEND & Learning Support

Provision of Learning Support

We provide carefully targeted additional support for children experiencing learning, emotional, behavioural or physical difficulties. We endeavour to enable these children to reach their full potential and increase their self esteem. We always put the child's best interest at the heart of decision making and believe in early identification leading to the most effective targeted support.

Progress is regularly monitored and reviewed to ensure targets are met. We encourage close liaison with parents to ensure that they are fully informed of their child's progress. We have strong links with the relevant specialist services; where necessary they provide us with additional guidance and support.


Your point of contact if you have any questions relating to special educational needs or learning support will in the first instance be your class teacher. Your child's class teacher may also refer you to have a conversation with our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Mrs L Batchelor - 01228 535091.
