Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We are committed to using our best endeavours to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all children at our school which enables them to:

 - Achieve their best

 - Become confident, independent individuals living fulfilling lives

 - Make a successful transition to their next phase of education or employment

We consider every teacher to be a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs and disabilities and we have the highest aspirations and expectations for all children. We aime to ensure those children with special educational needs and disabilities experience a broad, balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible and ensures they are included in all aspects of school life and feel equally valued and part of the school community.

Birkett House Special School

We were delighted to welcome pupils from Birkett House Special School in 2021 to a new purpose built block adjacent to our hall. Pupils from Birkett House work in their own base and also join our mainstream classes for part of the day, including music lessons, swimming and trips.
