Special Educational Needs
This page is designed to give you information about the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision at St Nicholas Church of England Primary School and Nursery. There is a range of information about how we support children with special educational needs in school as well as local and national information that you may find useful.
Our local authority also works really hard to support our families and children and the link below (click on the picture) will take you through to a range of information about Hertfordshire's local offer and how they can support you and your family.
At St Nicholas, Miss Ellie Onur (Inclusion Leader) is responsible for making sure all the children receive appropriate support for any challenges that may impact their learning. If you have any concerns about your child's development or learning you can contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions or queries about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at any point during your child’s time at our school, please speak to your child’s class teacher or our Inclusion Leader.
