How will we support your child with identified SEND starting at our school in any year group?


  • You will be invited you to visit the school with your child to have a look around and meet the Headteacher and class teacher.
  • You will also be invited to an Induction Meeting in which details of your child’s needs are noted, and in which you can ask questions relating to the school.
  • If other professionals or outside agencies are involved in supporting your child, a Multi-Agency Team (MAT) meeting may be held to discuss your child’s needs and to share strategies that are used.
  • The SENCO and class teacher may wish to liaise with the current setting your child attends if applicable.
  • We may suggest adaptations to the transition period to help your child to settle more easily.
  • The staff will closely monitor the progress the child makes and discuss this with you.

SEND Information Report 2023-24

Please visit our policies page to read our SEND Policy and also our Accessibility Plan for further advice and information on transition from year group to year group and from school to school. The report also provides information on how we identify children who need support, how parents are informed and involved and how we support children in school using expertise from outside agencies. Parents are also informed of the monitoring of progress and how we cater for pastoral needs.


If there any complaints relating to the provision for children with SEN or EAL these will be dealt with in the first instance by the class teacher and SENCO, then, if unresolved, by the head teacher.  The governor with specific responsibility for SEN may be involved if necessary.  In the case of an unresolved complaint the issue should be taken through the general governors’ complaints procedure.
