Welcome to the SEND section of our website. You can find out about everything we do to support children with special educational needs and disabilities. We believe in early identification and we pride ourselves on an inclusive, customised, child-centred approach. We proactively support any child requiring extra help, whether it be to access the curriculum or to support a difficult time in their life, enabling them to be the best they can be.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Kerry, who can be contacted via the school office.
Mrs Kerry is supported by Mrs Dolman (Deputy Headteacher) who is also a qualified SENDCo.
Our experienced SEND team also offer SEND coffee mornings throughout the year and invite different professionals to talk to families about SEND. It is also an opportunity to bring families together to share experiences. Here are some of the comments our parents say about our provision...
"All staff are approachable and supportive of the child and family"
"Shirland gives amazing support. Thank you for your help"
"Thank you for getting the ball rolling with my child, we have since had visits and calls with professionals"
"Just keep doing what you are doing, thank you"
"Thank you for always being there for me and my children whether being on the end of the phone or in person"
Please look on the calendar on our website for future coffee mornings. Everyone welcome.
