Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Fishburn Primary School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
Further information can be found in the How we adapt the curriculum and learning environment for children and young people with SEN section of the SEND Information Report.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
