Our SEND policy can be found here.
Our SEN department is led by our SENCo, Mrs T Oakshott-Marston. The department is staffed by a team of Teaching Assistants and also our Senior First Aider. The team will ensure that students with SEN are identified appropriately, supported within their learning, can access additional support where necessary and will work alongside all other professionals and agencies.
Any parent wishing to discuss their childs support can contact the SENCO via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
