We believe every child has the potential to excel and it is our responsibility to unlock that potential of those who need additional support through outstanding provision to meet their needs. We will not use the needs of an individual as an excuse for the lack of appropriate expected progress or achievement. We believe all children can be successful and it is our duty to enable that success. We see the success of every child as vital to our success. We are an outward-facing school, using our partners in education, health and social care to unlock the potential of every member of our learning community. We are committed to the total inclusion of all to whole school life and support learners to achieve this wherever possible. Click to return to the SEN home page. Special Educational Needs at
