7a. If yes, how strongly do you agree with this statement:

My child has SEND and the school gives them the support they need to succeed.

 

Our SEND children are supported in class by teaching assistants. Some children have an individual learning plan which identifies targets. All SEND are closely monitored.

 

If you feel that your child may have SEND or is particularly struggling, do not hesitate to contact the class teacher or Mrs McDade amcdade@ferrars.juniorluton.co.uk
