Additional provision support will also made available to a range of other underachieving or SEN pupils. We are equally aware that the environment that our children work and play in is very important and a lot of time and money has been invested to ensure that the classrooms and grounds are conducive to learning, and that all of our children are safe, secure and enjoying their time in school. We will continue to support individual families and children with links to external agencies and help where needed.
