Special Educational Needs

Miss Harrison  is our Special Educational Needs and Disability co-ordinator.  If you would like to speak with her regarding any concerns about your child please arrange a meeting via the school office or you can send her an email to harrison.j@crossacres.manchester.sch.uk

Thank you to all of the parents who responded to our SEND questionnaire that was recently sent out.  There was some really positive feedback about our SEND provision at school and it also highlighted some areas for us to improve on.  In previous years parents have requested more feedback on how their children progress towards their termly targets and as a result of this feedback we now send home a termly review of each child’s individual target sheets.

Throughout the school year we have regular SEND coffee mornings for parents.  These informal meetings are an opportunity for parents to raise any concerns they have, share ideas with each other and develop links with other SEND parents and professionals.  The parents who have attended the meetings gave very positive feedback and we will continue to build on that success this year! fund-coffee-morning-329x316

Catherine Desjardins is our SEND Governor who is also one of our parent Governors!
