The SEND team work with teaching staff, to ensure they support the children in a wide range of academic, physical and social needs. The school also maintains a very close working relationship with children, staff, parents and outside agencies.

Staff are trained to deal with a wide range of individual needs and to ensure all children are treated equally. The school SENDCo, in consultation with the local governing body, reviews the provision for children with SEND every year.
