Special Educational Needs
The SEND Reforms will place a statutory requirement on schools from September 2014 to make information available to parents about how the school supports children and young people with SEN. This information will form the main basis for the school’s Local Offer, which has to be published on the school’s website.
The School’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator is Mrs Anna O’Grady, contact via the main school office on 01772 632724.
The Child Protection Senior Designated Person is Mrs Katherine Shuttleworth, contact via the main school office on 01772 632724 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
