SEND Information

All students who attend this school are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum, suitably differentiated to meet individual needs.

It is our policy to assist all our students to achieve their full social, emotional and academic potential, both within the school community and in wider contexts.  Provision will be made for those whose needs are not easily met within the normal academic and pastoral curriculum so that they may remain as fully integrated as possible.
