SEND and Additional Needs

There may be times in your school life when you, your teachers or family feel you need some extra support to make sure you achieve your best. We want to make sure that your individual abilities are recognised and that you can achieve your potential. We make sure that staff understand your needs and abilities and are aware of them when teaching you.

SEND Team

The team consists of:

Mr D Goodwin - Director of Inclusion/SENDCO
Mrs J Chadwick – Assistant SENDCO
Mrs C Holland – Advanced Educational Teaching Assistant
Mrs E Armitage - Senior Educational Teaching Assistant
Mrs Josephine Evans - Trustee for SEND can be contacted by email here

We are committed to including and supporting students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We seek to meet the individual needs of all students and an extensive range of intervention strategies are available both inside and outside of the classroom setting.  The SENDCo attends the curriculum leaders meeting and the department is seen as an integral supportive mechanism for our students.
