At Bailey’s Court Primary School, we pride ourselves in the support that we are able to provide for children with special educational needs and disabilities. It is very important to us all that all children are able to reach their full potential. We work closely as a school with parents and outside agencies to provide additional support when needed to ensure that all of our children are successful developing as well rounded individuals.
Should you have any questions or concerns related to special educational needs or disabilities please do not hesitate to contact us.
SEND and Inclusion Leader
All South Gloucestershire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
