At the moment, whilst our school is closed, this page will be used to share activities, resources and ideas for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). It will be updated regularly with new content.
While you are at home, try to set a routine for each day if possible. Include time to complete some of the activities on the class pages, look at the activities on here if it helps and take some time to participate in other things you enjoy doing - including time for breaks and relaxation.
Above all, follow Government advice and keep yourself, your families and your community safe during this time.
We look forward to seeing you back at High Street safe and well as soon as possible!

SUPPORT FOR PARENTS

For many people things are difficult right now, and that’s why we’re supporting the @NSPCC who are still here for children who need their support now more than ever. If you’re worried about a child, please call their helpline on 0808 800 5000 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see this great school closure kit which has been devised for supporting children with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). It's a helpful resource with activities and visuals and could be used with other children with Special Educational Needs too.
