At The Rookeries, we want all of our pupils to be able to make the most of their education and know that they are a valuable member of the school community, regardless of their particular needs.

We give pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) the support that they need, along with a broad and balanced curriculum. We work closely with families to help their children succeed and go on to the next stage of their education with confidence. We aim high with our SEND pupils and we expect their results to be better than the national average.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is in charge of our SEND work at The Rookeries and organises support for individual pupils, including those who have Educational Health and Care Plans.

SENCo: Miss D Marsh
SEND and Inclusion School Governor: Mrs L Hatton
