Special Educational Needs Information

The school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Charlotte Parry. 

She works to support the leaders and class teachers at High Street Primary Academy to meet the needs of children who have Special Educational Needs.

Below is a link to our Special Educational Needs Information Report, which gives advice, contacts and general information detailing how the school supports the Special Educational Needs (SEN) children and their parents/carers.

At High Street every endeavour to allow access to the school for all children will be made.  However, please be aware of the potential difficulties for certain categories of physical disability due to the nature of the building. Any request for a place at High Street Primary Academy will be treated sympathetically by the Governors.

We welcome parent feedback on the SEN section of our website!

If you have any views on how it could be improved or any suggestions for additions please let Mrs Parry know.
