The school are fortunate to employ a full time Learning Mentor, Mrs Hutchinson. Whilst all staff are approachable and the school operate an “open door” policy, Mrs Hutchinson deals primarily with children when they have emotional or behavioural problems. The Mentor spends her time supporting children in class but also devotes a good deal of time to improving attendance and liaising with the BALE Centre who offer bespoke programmes supporting children with self-esteem, confidence building, friendship skills, anger management and nurturing. Further to this, they offer an Inclusion service for children who have presented with behaviour which is less than expected. The link with the BALE centre has allowed the school to maintain good behaviour and avoid exclusions.
Any specific medical problems that children may have are dealt with discreetly and confidentially. Any training for staff is current and up to date. Any medication is administered according to prescription and parents are asked to grant their permission in writing to allow staff to do this. All medicines are store securely in school.
Children are invited to be part of our Pupil Council to represent their class and offer their views for the improvement of the school. There is also a worry box and suggestion box where children can leave a written message if they have a concern they want to voice.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
