SEND Support

SEND - A note from Miss Williams 
 

Welcome to our school SEND page.  Here you will find lots of activities and links to help you continue with your learning at home.  We hope you are keeping safe and well!

I understand this is a time of change and anxiety for many children, particularly those with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability). I have collated a number of websites that may be of use to you during the school shut down.

 

This page will be updated on a fortnightly basis, so make sure you visit the page regularly to check for new resources. Any new resources will be arranged in date order to make it easier for you to navigate around the page. 

We know that our SEND pupils all have a range of needs, therefore we are providing a whole range of resources for you to choose from. You can also look at other year group pages if you know that your child is still working to secure objectives and targets in another year group.

 We would love to hear from you and see what you are getting up to at home and also if you have any questions or need more support so please don't hesitate to get in touch with me using the following email   senco@kirkstallss.net  

All resources on this page do not have to be printed off however if you would like a paper copy, please email me and I will try and arrange for a pack to be posted to you. 

I check this email regularly and so will aim to get back to you ASAP. 

In the meantime, take care and stay safe, 

Miss Williams
