Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At St Anne’s Infants’ School we believe that all children should be equally valued in school.  We are committed to creating an environment where all pupils can thrive and develop. We work in partnership with parents/carers and other agencies to provide appropriate support for our pupils so that they can fulfil their potential. Our 'Local Offer' is outlined in the document attached.

 

If you would like to discuss the needs of your child or have questions or concerns, please get in touch with our Deputy Head/SENDCo (Mrs Jo Moss) who can be contacted via the office.

 

 For information about SEND and the support available from the Local Authority, please visit: www.bristol.gov.uk/page/children-and-young-people/education-children-special-needs
