Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Bishop Parker School, we strive to meet the needs of all children within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify children who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, health professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for children within our care.
The following documents and links will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support children. If you have any concerns about your child, please speak to their class teacher in the first instance. We can then arrange to meet at a mutually convenient time.
We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
