"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10

Secondary School Information Event (SEN) Thursday 12th September with Mrs Hudson-Evans, Mrs Clifford-Chapman and Mrs Ringham.

Thank you to all those who attended the information session, I hope you found it useful!

Remember to visit lots of Secondary Schools either through a private, arranged meeting or an Open Day (both if you can!), talk to staff about your child and their needs...and remember to make notes!


As discussed, please find some of the useful questions/things to think about below. The Open Day list for surrounding secondary schools is also included below.


What provision is on offer? Do they have designated pastoral care? A SEN team?

What is the expertise of the staff? Have they had recent and regular training?

Does it feel welcoming? Are staff and children helpful? 

Is the building easy to navigate?

What happens at lunchtimes or break times? What types of support is on offer during these times?

Always raise any concerns that you may have, for example anything highlighted in the Ofsted, with staff.
