SEND

 

Please find below details about Special Education Needs and Disabilities and how we support children at Grange.

As our school SEND policy explains; our aim is to raise the aspirations, expectations and progress leading to achievement for all pupils with SEN or a disability. This is the responsibility of every member of our school staff. We also work very closely with families to offer support and advice for a variety of reasons.

Please see our interactive ‘School Information Report’ for answers to the frequently asked questions around support and accessibility for those with special educational needs or disabilities.

Our SENCO is Mrs Lucy Keay. If you would like to speak to her please contact the school office at the email address or telephone number found below.
