Special Educational Needs & Disability

All staff are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for all children

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

Who do I see if I am worried?

  1. Your child’s Teacher is your first point of contact. You can arrange to speak to the Teacher after school, usually by appointment.
  2. You can also arrange to speak to the school’s SENCO, Mrs Claire Monk.  Please call the School Office on 01458 250673 or email
  3. Make an appointment with the Headteacher through the School Office .

Who might work with my child?

Huish Episcopi Primary School has an excellent team of Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Higher Level Teaching Assistants that have a wealth of knowledge and experience.

It may be necessary to involve outside professionals to support the school in planning appropriate provision for your child. You will be included in the process of referring to these services. These could include:
