As teachers and parents, we know just how unique our children are. They have different interests, different life-experiences, different characters and different strengths – and all these are to be celebrated. Sometimes, however, children need varying amounts of help and support in their learning journey – sometimes to boost them back on track – and sometimes because they have a learning difference which will require specific provision and even external advice, in order to help them access the curriculum and achieve personal success.
At Alexander First School we warmly welcome all children, regardless of ability, disability or medical need. We are an inclusive school, with staff who are passionate about providing the very best education for all children. We encourage a close partnership between home and school. If you are a prospective parent with a child who has a Special Educational Need, then we would encourage you to come for a visit, to meet our staff and begin a conversation about how we can meet your child’s needs.
Mrs Haslett is the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) and together with Mrs Corcoran, they are responsible for the SEND provision at Alexander First School. They can be contacted through the school office.
