Miss Pallas as Acting Deputy Headteacher has the strategic lead for SEND and Inclusion and all SEND provision is co-ordinated by the SENCo Mrs Liversage. SEND Provision is monitored, reviewed and evaluated on a regular basis and reports are presented to the school Governing Board on how individual needs are being met and how SEND funding is used. Funding may be spent on additional services. For example, employing the services of a Speech and Language Therapist and additional traded time from the Educational Psychologist.
We have a named governor (Mrs Julia Shemilt) who is overseeing SEND within the Governing Board.
