Inclusion and SEN

We work with students and their parents/carers to make it possible for every young person to participate fully in their education and to secure strong academic progress and personal outcomes and to enable individual students to learn effectively with greater independence.

Our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is Mrs S Zarar.
