Responsibility of the Governing Body
In our school we have a Governor who is responsible for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and her name is Catherine Foster.
Her job is to meet with the SENDCo regularly. In these meetings, the SEND Governor makes sure that children, young people and families are being supported by the right services from in and outside of school. The SEND Governor will also visit the school, observe what happens in classrooms and meet with class teachers, support staff and children and young people.
In addition the Headteacher and SENDCo have to give a report to the SEND Governor at least twice a year. The SEND Governor shares this report with the other Governors so that the full Governing Board is aware of how Special Educational Needs are being supported in the school and how well this support is working. The Governors will challenge, support and advise the Headteacher if appropriate provision is not being made.
If you have a complaint about the school please contact either the Headteacher, SEND Governor or Chair of Governors, and we will do everything we can to resolve the issue. Our school and Governing Board take complaints seriously and will act upon these on an individual basis
