SEN and Inclusion


At Herbert Strutt we aim to meet the needs of every child as an individual, academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally. We do this in a variety of ways as class teachers; as partners with outside agencies and with yourself as parents. 

Our Inclusion leader is Mrs Sarah Cooper; she teaches in Y2. She works with the Teaching Assistants and Class teachers to review the provision for pupils and to ensure that any programs or interventions are targeted effectively. 

Mrs Cooper is also responsible for the provision for our Higher Attaining pupils in school.

To access more information about our provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities please view our SEN Information Report below.
