English as an Additional Language (EAL)
We welcome children from all over the world and have children who speak a range of languages at our school. Parents and children are invited to a meeting with the EAL coordinator and class teacher before they start school so that we can best meet their language needs.
Ms Louise Roberts is responsible for EAL provision within the school.

Social, emotional and mental health
If you need advice on your child's social, emotional or mental health RISE Primary Mental Health Team offer consultations and parent information sessions.
These can be booked over the phone - you will be offered a one off 45 minute consultation where you can discuss your child's difficulties with a professional.
Please see the flyer for more details.
Education and Health Care Plans
Some children may need an Education and Health Care Plan to ensure that they receive the correct support in school. This is a legally binding document that details a child's needs that impact them accessing education and health and care compared to another individual. The EHC plan will explain the provision needed, who is to provide the support, where and if any equipment is required.
Nurseries and schools can apply for EHC needs assessments or behalf of parents once enough evidence is gathered through professionals such as Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapy etc. Parents can also apply direct to the Local Authority.
