If you have any concerns about your child’s SEN, progress or provision we would urge you to come into school and discuss matters further with your child’s class teacher or the school SENCO. Although school complaints procedures are in place, we would always hope to resolve any issues or concerns informally by working in partnership with parents.

Newcastle's local offer for families can be found here.
