What are Special Educational Needs and Disabilities?
A Special Educational Need and is a difficulty or barrier that affects a child's ability to learn and to access the curriculum. A Disability is a long term health condition which causes a difficulty or barrier to learn or to access the curriculum. We are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils and recognise that some of our children will need additional support.

Who are the SEND team?
Mrs Harper and Mrs Mackey lead SEND across the Grace Federation, where they work closely with the Class Teachers in monitoring progress of learners. They offer support to Teachers in suggesting strategies and intervention Programmes that could support the gaps in learning. They offer regular observations to see the barriers to learning and offer support there too.
