Special Educational Needs

The register can be found on the above Performance Tables website link. All children on our SEN register have an Individual Support Plan or an Educational Healthcare Plan, which is reviewed termly with the parent and child and is also moderated (checked for quality) by our SEN Coordinator. Depending on the level of need we have children who simply require differentiated activities to help them to learn through to a small number of children who require close adult support almost all of the time. For our SEN policies please click here.
