Family, staff and pupil support

We fully appreciate that school staff do not have adequate time to meet with parents, attend meetings, provide 1:1 and small group interventions for low level family and community needs. We also understand the growing demands on mainstream SENDCo's with the increasing numbers of SEND pupils being placed in mainstream schools.
