Information about how we support pupils who have pastoral, medical and social needs are included in the section entitled, How we support SEN.
The quality of care, guidance and support in our school is excellent and we pride ourselves in knowing every child’s abilities and needs.
We consult with a wide range of agencies and partnerships to ensure the pastoral, medical and social needs of SEND children are met.
Our well trained staff are up-to-date with many aspects of well-being, some having very specialised skills which can support children with complex needs or in vulnerable circumstances. Children also have access to a Counsellor. The school works closely with ‘First Contact’ services and our attendance officer. Several members of staff are trained in specific medical procedures for children with identified needs. Almost all staff have some form of First Aid training, from basic to enhanced. Some staff are also trained in delivering medicines in school.
Pupils use stairs to access our classrooms. We work closely with Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy to provide support for pupils with movement difficulties for whom stairs may present difficulty. Please contact school if you would need to discuss this further. Staff will always provide support for visitors/ pupils with disabilities.
Individual programmes of support are tailored to the specific needs of the child where necessary. If your child has specific needs, please contact Mrs. Eileen Martin, Headteacher or Miss Barbara Taws, SENCO so that we can discuss how we can best support them.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
