SEND – School Information 2016/2017

We are a fully inclusive school of around 100 pupils aged 4-9 and Dinky Dragon’s Nursery with over 50 children.  Our aim is to create a happy environment where every child feels secure and free to enjoy all elements of learning and where parents and carers feel fully involved with this very important stage in their child’s life.  We are committed to developing and offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure all children make the best possible progress whilst they are with us, whatever their needs or disabilities.
