Mrs Johnson is our School Inclusion Manager (SENCO) and Deputy Headteacher.
She works with children, teachers, parents and agencies to ensure that our pupils’ needs are met.
Mrs Johnson will make sure that all necessary school staff are aware of your child’s needs and worries.
If your child has been identified with extra educational needs, an Individual Learning Plan will be written with the teacher and shared with you and your child.
If your child has medical needs, a care plan and pupil profile will be written and shared with you.
All staff have access to these plans. The plans identify how your child should be helped to succeed and make progress. These plans will be reviewed regularly.
