Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

We strive to meet the needs of all pupils in our two infant schools. All Federation staff are aware of SEND and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs.

We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils in our care.

To discuss SEND provision at our schools, please contact Mrs Heather Marriott, SEND Co-ordinator tel: 01629 822496 email: heather.marriott@wirksworth-inf.derbyshire.sch.uk.
