We believe that the parents of children with SEND play an essential role in supporting their children’s progress both in and out of school. As a result of this, the school work hard to ensure strong links with parents. The school’s Inclusion Manager and pastoral team are always available before and after school to talk to, should you have any queries or concerns. The SENCo also runs termly information sessions for parents, which all parents of children with SEND are invited to by letter. Further appointments can be made with the SENCo as required by contacting the school. Class teachers are also always available both before and after school. If they are unable to answer your question directly, they may consult the SENCo/Inclusion Manager and get back to you as soon as possible. Feedback on provision for children with SEND is also welcomed on our termly parent questionnaires, which are handed out at parents’ evenings.
We are very pleased with the support we offer and we know that on the whole our parents are too -they have told us this in many parent questionnaires. If any parents are unclear or unsure of the support their child is receiving however, in the first instance the issue should be discussed with the child’s class teacher. If the issue is still not resolved it may be relevant to speak to the SENCo.

The School Inclusion Manager/SENCO is: Mrs Mandy Baggott.

Complaints procedure for SEND​

The school follows a complaint procedure and this will be followed for any SEND complaints.


If you have a query or complaint regarding your child and their special educational need please initially talk to the class teacher/phase leader. This query will then be discussed and resolved or passed on to the SENCo.


If you feel this issue has not been dealt with sufficiently or you still need further advice please inform the Head teacher or governing body.
