Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Dean Valley we endeavor to provide maximum inclusion for all our children whilst meeting their individual needs. If a child is experiencing difficulties with their learning, the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator works closely with parents, staff and outside agencies, to provide carefully planned support. This is in accordance with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

The SENCO at Dean Valley Community Primary School is Mrs R. Gregory

If you would like any further information, Mrs Gregory can be contacted by email.

The governors with responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are:

Mrs E Healey and Mr T Hudson.
