What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 1988, Stephen Neale MA Dip Ed Tech Dip Ed (late 50s).

His enthusiasm for travelling, links with other schools and exploring different cultures all over the globe influences many of the school’s activities.

Special Education Needs
Beatrix Potter is an inclusive school, we have catered for a range of needs over several years with great success. Like any school with a 30's building and space limitations we think creatively In the years 2000-2009 we had on average 11 children with statements and some 32 children on the SEN register. 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
