Our SEND team is made up of 8 SEND Teaching Assistants, who support children in class either on a 1:1 basis or small group support. We also have Mrs Shelbourne who is our Social Skills and Behavioural Support Teaching Assistant, Mrs May our Speech and Language Teaching Assistant, Mrs Varga, Student Support Officer and Mrs McAndrews, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo). We are also lucky to have an ASD SRB attached to our school, here a team of 5 adults (1 Teacher and 4 Teaching Assistants) support up to 10 children in a smaller environment offering specialised support.
