Members of our Well-Being Team, along with our Senior Leadership Team, are on the school gates in the morning and at the end of the school day. They are happy to help; do say hello and ask if you have a question or query.
Our Family Liaison Officer/Well-Being Mentor is Miss Nicole Cooper. You are welcome to speak to her on the gate or ask to make an appointment via the school office.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
SEN and Disabilities are led by our Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion), Mrs Janet Davison. Children with SEN are supported in a variety of ways according to a child’s needs. Approximately 15% of our pupils are supported through ‘SEN Support’ and ‘Education, Health and Care Plans’. The school works closely with outside agencies to ensure children’s barriers to learning are understood well and supported effectively. Outside agencies include: Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychology Service, LIFT, Specialist Teaching and Learning Service, Children’s Assessment Centre (Paediatricians, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists) and CAMHS.
