Whitefriars Church of England Primary Academy

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:

SENDCO:     Miss Susan Barrett

Learning and Inclusion Coordinator:     Mrs Jayne Marshall

Assistant SENDCO:     Mrs Michelle Newland

Head Teacher:     Mr Mathew Tuckwood

SEN Governor:   Miss 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.
