SEND Home Learning

On this page, you will find some links and resources for those who want some additional support for their children with Special Educational needs, for example Speech and Language or motor skills activities. We want to ensure that the children are supported as best as possible during this tricky time.

Each tab will have different areas identified with different activities to download and print or, if you contact us by the class email pages, we can email the pack to you.

No printer? No problem. Let us know by email which pack(s) you require and we can produce a paper copy for you to collect from school. Please contact the school office to arrange a convenient time to call.
