Additional Needs

We are a fully inclusive school and offer places to children who have a range of additional needs. We aim to work in partnership with parents/ carers and families to ensure that all our children are happy and secure and can access a learning environment and curriculum which will meet their individual needs. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your child’s needs.
