Special Educational Needs Information
At Whitefriars Church of England Primary Academy we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality first teaching is vital. However, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.
The SEN Team within our school is:
SENCO: Miss Susan Barrett
Learning and Inclusion Coordinator: Mrs Jayne Marshall
Assistant SENCO: Ms Michelle Newland
Head Teacher: Mr Mat Tuckwood
SEN Governor: Jill Hemmings
Our job is to help your child achieve the very best they can at school. You know your child best and you may feel that they need some additional help or support for some or all of their time at school.
