What the school says...

The School is gradually expanding to two form entry over the next years.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers.

There are always some tensions catering for SEN children but the impact on all children has been very positive. Clearly, changes to the funding of SEN have an impact and will inevitably cause questions to be asked about what can and cannot be done. However, in an inclusive society at some point these issues will have to be properly addressed. 10-09
