It is important that every child flourishes and is supported in school, regardless of the challenges they may face. We work in partnership with a number of outside agencies and families themselves to support children with SEN and ensure that they get the very best we can offer them.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Catherine Timmons. She works with us usually on Thursdays and is very experienced; we share her with another Hampshire school. In pre-school, Mrs Hutchinson manages the day to day SEN overseen by Mrs Timmons, both of whom have many, many years of Early Years experience. We refer any pre-school cases we would like further support with in pre-school to our Area Inclusion Co-ordinator.
Mrs Timmons can be contacted via the school office.
Since September 2014, we have published a School SEN information report which gives parents an easy to access document about how we identify and support not just children with Special Educational Needs but their families too.
In addition to the school publishing it’s SEN information report, Hampshire have a whole website dedicated to SEN and how they can support families. It’s a vital source of information on who you can approach for support and how the SEN system works.
