At Orchard Head we want all our pupils to be able to make the most of their education and know they’re a valuable member of the school community, regardless of their particular needs.
We give pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) the support they need, along with a broad and balanced curriculum. We work closely with families to help their children succeed and go on to the next stage of their education with confidence. We aim high with our SEND pupils, and we expect their results to be better than the national average.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is in charge of our SEND work at Orchard Head and organises support for individual pupils, including those who have Educational Health and Care plans (or Statements until 2018).
SENCo: Miss Helen Squires
