Mrs Boggis - has gained the National Award for SEN Co-ordination.

This year we are training a teaching assistant as an ELSA - an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant who  will work across the school supporting children with their emotional regulation.

We will also be training a teaching assistant in Protective Behaviours to support children to learn about how to preserve their own safety.


We also work with many different specialist services from our local authority and the NHS including:

  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Educational Psychology
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Communication and Autism Team
  • Counselling
  • Windermere SpLD Outreach Team
  • Collett School Outreach team
  • Early Years Team
  • Hearing Impairment Team
  • Physical and Neurological Impairment Team
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service
  • Clinical Psychologists
  • Children’s Community Nurses

Your child may work with one of these services if a referral to that service is made. This may come through your GP, Paediatrician or through our school. We would seek advice from a specialist service if we feel that they could have a positive impact on your child’s progress through sharing their expertise in an area of need. This would be discussed with you and your permission sought before any referral is made.

Welcome back to the Summer Term!
