SEND Coordinator

Miss. Nicola Garge and Miss. Rebecca Lewis are our Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities Coordinators (SENDCo’s). Miss Garge is responsible for KS2 and the ARB while Miss Lewis is responsible for EYFS and KS1.

The SENDCO takes day-to-day responsibility for the operation of the SEND policy and coordination of the provision made for individual children with SEND, working closely with staff, parents and carers, and other agencies. The SENDCO also provides related professional guidance to colleagues with the aim of securing high quality teaching for children with SEN.

The SEND Governor is Mr. Andrew Mercer. Andrew is a qualified teacher and an autism advisor for the county. His role is to monitor and challenge the SEND provision within the school to ensure it is of the highest standard. Andrew carries out regular monitoring visits to the school and produces reports submitted to the governing body.
