SEND Home Learning

COVID-19 Home learning.

With the school currently closed to the majority of our pupils I understand that many parents of pupils with special educational needs may be concerned about the provision for their children. Whilst the class pages contain many activities suitable for all pupils I will also put activities and resources aimed specifically at those pupils on our SEND register here on this page. 

We have also put together a 'wellbeing pack' to help with any worries and emotions during this period of home learning. We know that some of our young people will be anxious around becoming ill or school being closed and some of the activities within this pack may help a little with coping with challenging emotions and worries at this time.

I will add files and useful websites regularly so keep checking back for new things to do.

Should you have any concerns or wish to contact me, please do so via my email:

Stay well,

Mrs Doherty
