My name is Mrs Medhurst and I have responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) within our school. It is a privilege to support all of our children, parents and staff to work together to set high expectations, inspire, challenge, achieve and celebrate learning in our school.
As SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) I am responsible for managing the provision for children who require additional support. My role, in partnership with parents, staff, and outside specialists is to ensure that the specific needs of all children, whether they be social, emotional, behavioural, medical or cognitive, are identified and appropriate support put in place. To help your child to achieve their full potential we will always ask them how they think we and you can support them. We will make sure they are involved in setting their own goals and targets. If your child requires a Learning Plan, we will have a meeting with you and your child to ensure targets are shared and you are aware of the support in place for their needs.
If you feel you need to speak with me, my details are below:

In line with current school closures, we have created an updated SEND information report that will hopefully answer any and all questions you may have about how we will support children with SEND during this difficult time. If you have any questions about the information included in this report, please do not hesitate to contact us.
