Our philosophy for Inclusion is for our SEND students to be happy and safe within their learning environment, and to ensure that every child has accessibility to their education no matter what their needs are.   We encourage everyone to work as a team around the child, thus ensuring they are able to fulfil their potential.

The SENCo is responsible for:

Although the Headteacher, Mr J Farr, has delegated responsibility to the SENCo and subject teachers to meet the learning needs of your child, he is still responsible for the day to day management of all aspects of the school, including the support for children with SEND.

The Governing Body is responsible for making sure that the necessary support is provided for any child who attends the school who has SEND. Governors ensure that there is a named SEND Governor to oversee SEND practices and provision within in the school, and report back to the Governing Body.

Our SEND Governor is Mrs Tracy Haynes. She meets regularly with the SENCo and the Assistant Headteacher with SEND responsibility, Ms Nicola Orchard.
