Additional Support Materials


Dear Parent/carer,

Due to the current ongoing situation around Covid-19, I thought that you might find it useful to have a central hub where you can download resources/links and advice around supporting children with additional support needs.

The resources posted here will usually be emailed to parents via ParentPay also.

Please feel free to get in touch with advice or suggestions regarding the content of this section of the school website. I will endeavour to alert parents to updated ASN material via Twitter.

Keep safe,

Mr Adams
