Information and advice on SEN

Every child is unique and special in their own way and every child makes their own journey through the educational milestones that are laid out in front of them. 

Some children develop at a rate that may cause parents concern and their child may end up being identified as having an additional need that needs to be supported and nurtured in a different way. 

This is often defined as 'special educational needs' and this can be different for every child. This need doesn't have to have a diagnosis of needs but likewise it can and we always advice parents to come and talk if they are worried. 

We have set this page up to help parents understand what SEND provision schools offer and how we can help.
