SEND

At Greenfields we believe that all children have an entitlement to learning experiences which will enable them to achieve their full potential in terms of social, emotional & academic development.

Mrs Weller is the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator). If you have concerns about your child please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance. If you then need further support Mrs Weller is available to contact via the office.

The inclusion team offer support across all areas of learning: literacy & maths interventions, speech & language strategies, Social Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) support as well as supporting other issues that have become apparent.

The inclusion team consists of:

We have an allocated school family worker from South West Herts Partnership called Caroline Vine-Lott.

If you have any family issues that you’d like to discuss please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We aim to involve parents/carers in all aspects of their children’s education and discuss any additional needs and provision with them. If your child is being supported by the Inclusion team there are monthly inclusion drop in sessions available for families to book. Please contact the office for details or check the calendar on the website.

The SEN (Special Educational Needs) information report may be of use to you if your child is on the SEN register or you think they may have SEN.
