We, at Monks Abbey, are committed to giving the best quality education to all the children who attend the school. We are proud of the additional support we are able to give to those children who need a little more help and support. As part of these we are developing in conjunction with parents and governors our local plan to support children in accordance with both new statute and our own vision.
Follow the questions below to see the relevant documentation for you and if you have any questions or queries or need any clarification please contact us using one of the methods at the bottom of this page.
Welcome - the best place to start is to read a little about our school, How we work with you to identify your child’s Special Educational Need (SEN) and how we can support you and your child here at Monks Abbey.
As well as the resources above there are a growing number of "apps" that are useful for supporting pupils with particualr needs - see some support sheets for children with:
If a parent has a concern or complaint regarding Special Needs, they are encouraged in the first instance to meet with the SENCO. If this matter is not resolved satisfactorily the Headteacher should be notified.
If the concern is not resolved, parents have the right to ask for an examination of the complaint by the Governing Body.
See Monks Abbey's Complaints Policy (in the 'Policies' section - using the link below) for more information.
Making sure that every child has the best possible opportunities to succeed is very important to all of the staff, governors and children at Monks Abbey; so if you have any questions, queries or issues please contact us.
