SEND

In our school we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs. We have high expectations of all our children. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.

Our last OFSTED report stated that we were a school that ‘welcomes pupils of all abilities’ and that ‘pupils with special needs make good progress because their needs are identified early.’

The school provides for children with a wide range of abilities/and or difficulties. Places for children with or without a special educational need and disability are allocated in line with the whole school admissions policy.
