Underpinning the aims and values of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum, it is important that the curriculum we offer provides opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve at an appropriate level and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life, in their local community and the wider world.
In addition to the support and resources the Class Teachers provide in the classroom, as a school, we have achieved a Dyslexia Friendly award, all our staff are Somerset Total Communication trained (levels one to three) and we have a Hearing Resource Base on-site, all demonstrating our commitment to the school's motto 'All can achieve'.
Key members of staff in school:
SENDCO Miss Denise Mawdsley (from September 2017)
SEND Inclusion Manager Mrs Caroline Burgess
SEND Governor: Matt O'Connor
