Here you will find some general information pages to help support families with children who have special educational needs, including social, emotional and mental health needs.
If you have any questions or queries regarding SEND then please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office.
Many thanks for your continued support.
If your child has been accessing Nessy in school, please remember that they are able to access it at home as well. Since introducing Nessy in school we have seen huge progress from many children and we have noticed that the key to success has been consistency. Please encourage your child to log on for 20-30 minutes as often as possible. I get weekly reports so am able to monitor the children's progress whilst they are at home. If you are unable to remember the log-in details that were sent out last year then please get in touch and I will resend them.
