Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Our school undertook a review of the SEN policy to meet the requirements for SEND in line with the new SEND code of practice effective from the 1st September 2014. To provide a compliant policy we co-produced it with families, staff and governors. The policy is reviewed annually. Please click here to read our SEND Policy. Our SENCO Dawn Roper, received the National Award for SEND Co-ordination in July 2015.
