Special Education Needs
Palfrey Junior School is fully inclusive of children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs and/or English as an Additional Language. We have expertise in working with hearing and visually impaired children, physical disabilities, ADHD, and those with learning difficulties. We have had children with Dysgraphia, Neurofibromatosis and Agensis of the Corpus Callosum. We take pride in offering all our children equal access to a rich curriculum, regardless of ability. At Palfrey we also offer pastoral care from a committed and caring staff. We believe that school should be a happy and rewarding experience for all.
