Special Education Needs

The school accomodates a Strategic Facility for Special Educational Needs. This accommodates those children who have severe learning difficulties and specific special needs that can not be accommodated in their own neighbourhood school, but are not such that their needs can only be met by a special school. Admission is controlled by the Cumbria Education Service SEN Department. Depending on their individual needs, children accommodated within the Strategic Facility may be wholely or partly educated within it, or may be mainly within a mainstream class.
