A message from Mrs Fernandez
Children with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities and their families are a valued part of our school community. Our ultimate goal is that they participate fully in school life, fulfil their potential and experience good mental health. We seek to identify and build upon the pupils' individual strengths and talents, whilst developing their identified area(s) of need. We do so by working closely with those who know them best - their parents and carers. We also work with external agencies, incorporating their specialist advice and training into our provision. We use what we know about each pupil to plan well-differentiated lessons which maximise inclusion for everybody.
At the heart of a happy, inclusive school is the strong mental health of its pupils, staff and parents/carers. Our two Mental Health TAs are based out of class and are there to support the mental health of our whole community. Through ELSA sessions, they develop pupils' emotional literacy and they run the Cosy Café, which recognises that some children benefit from a smaller, nurturing environment at lunchtime.
On this section of the website, you will find our SEND Policy and Information Report and our Accessibility Plan, which outline our aims, vision, procedures and processes to ensure that all children with SEND thrive. Do contact me on 0151 6459844 or email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to chat about our SEND provision.
