SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES (SEND) information:
Children with SEND will be considered for admission in exactly the same way as any other child
wishing to join the Federation, in accordance with the Admissions Policy. However, parents should
make particular arrangements to discuss individual needs in the context of the school. For children
with mobility difficulties the school offers level access to all main buildings and carpeting throughout
the teaching areas. The schools have toilet facilities for the disabled. We believe in providing the best
that we can for all our pupils, whether they are gifted and talented, disadvantaged or vulnerable, or
whether they have additional needs.

school and access appropriate advice and support. The Governor with responsibility for Special
Educational Needs is Mrs Suzie Allen.
