SEND Provision:

SEND provision at Friarage School follows a personal approach, which focuses on individual goals and supports all children in accessing a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our Information Report details how we identify, support and monitor the education of children with SEND.

Our SEND and Inclusion policy is also available below. If you require any of these as hard copies, or in larger prints, please request this at the school office.

Who can I contact?

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator is Miss L Tymon. Please contact her if your child has a Special Educational Need or Disability.

Our Inclusion Manager is Mr A Vipond. Please contact him if your child is facing a challenge at home or school that you think we can help with. Our Pastoral Lead is Miss Williams. She may also be a point of contact with school if they are working with your child.

Please ask to speak to one of them if your child is facing challenges. Contact the school office to arrange this on 01723 374244.

Where else can I get support?

As a part of the Children and Families Act 2014 all local authorities have to publish a ‘local offer’ for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families.
