Inclusion & SEND

Article 23: A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and, as far as possible, independence and to play an active part in the community. Governments must do all they can to provide support to disabled children and their families.

Our Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Rebecca Ware.  

Rebecca can be contacted via email at or by phoning our main reception: 0117 3790888.
