SEND

At Buntingford First School we pride ourselves on working closely with families who have children that have a Special Educational Need and/or Disability.  We hope that Parents and Carers feel supported and that their children feel included in all areas of the curriculum.  We like to work closely with families to make sure children have all their needs met and that reasonable adjustments are made to ensure that children make good progress and are being prepared for future learning and adventures.  

If you need to discuss your child's learning and any possible Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Mrs K. England is the SENDCo and can be contacted via the office on admin@buntingfordfirstschool.co.uk
