Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Greenfield we are proud of the excellent reputation we have for supporting and developing children with special educational needs and disabilities.
All children receive high quality teaching which is then differentiated for individual pupils. Support is led by Mrs Watkins, our SENCO and Assistant Head teacher and Mrs Berry, Assistant SENCO alongside pastoral care specialists, class teachers and their learning support assistants.
We work closely with parents and health professionals to ensure interventions for learning and practical support meet the child's individual needs.
