Pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability

Our school strives to ensure that pupils who have disabilities or other Special Educational Needs are fully included in school life and are able to fully access the curriculum through the carefully planned provision.

The school’s provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is co-ordinated by Mrs Catherine Donkin, the Special Educational Needs Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCO).  Sarah Watson is the school’s named governor for Special Educational Needs and Disability.

The school follows the SEN Code of Practice in identifying and supporting children.

Able, Gifted or Talented Pupils

Provision is also made for more able pupils through the extended curriculum and through a variety of opportunities across and outside the school.
