Special Education Needs
As a non-selective school the children usually join us at the age of three and our educational provision therefore embraces children's needs across the spectrum. Specialist tutors are available for dyslexic and dyspraxic children. Should more specific disabilities be evident then appropriate support would be requested from outside sources and provision made within the restrictions of the building, practical facilities and the effects on the welfare and education of the other children.
