If your child has a Special Educational Need, you may find the following information useful.
Our SENCo is Ms Elliott. If you need to contact her at any time please make an appointment at reception or call school on 01623 480440. Alternatively you can send a message to the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will get back to you.
She is able to answer questions on SEND and pastoral needs, find you information on support available and coordinate support from different services. If you are worried or finding things difficult, she is here to listen and to help.
If you are a Year 2 or Year 6 parent in particular, and are worried about transition between schools, please contact Ms Elliott as soon as possible to discuss what support we can provide.
Change is difficult for many children, and is a particularly difficult time for children with SEN. Many children will have questions that you may not know how to answer. The above documents may help prepare children for changes of school and returning to school after a long absence. There are useful activities here that you can explore as a family, allowing children to explore change in a safe environment. As always, if you have concerns or your child is worried please let school know.
