Special Educational Needs (SEN)

We have put together a SEND offer document in response to a number of questions that are often raised about how children with learning difficulties are supported during theireducation at Lena Gardens Primary School. The offer document is available to view by following the SEND offer link here.

The document is in draft form only. We welcome parent input and feedback. We will hold a Coffee Morning later in the term to discuss our offer.
