Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Many children need extra support at some time during their education. We aim to identify these needs as early as possible and make Individual Education Plans (IEPs) where necessary.

Parents/carers are fully informed and invited to work with us on the targets set for their children.

Mel Burrowes, our non-teaching Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo), is responsible for leading our provision for children with special needs. These children are given work to match their level of ability.  All children are entitled to receive an education that is appropriate to their stage of development.

We welcome pupils with disabilities and endeavour to meet their needs. Our building is on one level with easy access.  Disability requirements are met as needed.

Bristol's Local Offer website https://www.bristol.gov.uk/web/bristol-local-offer provides support and information for parents, professionals and young people. The new Bristol Support Plan template, EHCP application documents and Top Up funding applications can all be found on this helpful website. In addition to this, there is a wealth of information and advice for parents of young people with SEND, from advice and information services to supported play and travel advice. Take a look at what's on offer in our local area.

If you have a concern as a parent, child or young person, about special educational needs Supportive Parents are an independent organisation who offer a free, confidential and impartial service. They can provide you with all the information you need to understand the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) process and improve your, or your child's educational experience.
