SEN

Our SEN team includes Mrs Palmer, school SENCo, Mrs Uren, Family Liaison Officer and Miss Smith, Learning Mentor.

Mrs Palmer and Miss Smith are Trauma Informed School practitioners. This means that they are able to support children’s mental health and well-being. Mrs Uren supports our families in many different ways and also acts as the school's attendance officer.

  • Referring to speech and language
  • Contacting the school nurse to help with toileting
  • Contacting the Health Visitor to support with sleeping patterns/behaviours
  • Arranged for an Educational psychologist visit
  • Linked with special schools

  • We have arranged for families to be contacted by Family Support Workers
  • Put Early Years TAC meetings into place
  • Invited the Early Years Inclusion team in for visits
  • Applied for additional funding to purchase resources for specific needs.

Even if it is just an informal chat you need, please contact us. We would like your child and family to feel supported by the school.
