A Message From Miss Lawson.
Supporting your children during lockdown
As we are now in another lockdown I wanted to share with you some useful links and websites that you can access to gain information on how best to support your SEND child during the lockdown.
Please feel free to ring the school office if you are in need of any advice and Mrs Gettins and I will support you in anyway we can.
Keep smiling and stay safe.
We are finally out of yet another lockdown and all the children are back in school, which is wonderful to see.
We know that this past year has brought many changes especially to your child’s education.
Below are some useful documents that you can access in order to support your children with things like Speech and Language and Physical Development.
