Special Educational Needs & Disability

All staff at Huish Episcopi Primary School are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for all children.

We are an inclusive school, working together with parents/carers and a wide range of outside agencies and professionals. This enables us to provide individualised provision to best meet any additional educational, social and emotional needs for our pupils.

Who do I see if I am worried?

  2. You can also arrange to speak to the school’s SENCO—Liz Ramsay.
  3. An appointment with the Head of School can be made through the School Office.
