At Thorns Primary School we strive to meet the needs of all children, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

From 1st September 2014 The Children and Families Act 2014 have introduced a new SEND code of practice. Significant changes to the way in which children's needs are met have been introduced by the Government.

At Thorns we provide the support that children need. We review support arrangements regularly and work closely with parents and carers to assess and deliver a plan that ensures all children learn successfully.

If you have any concerns about your child's progress please do not hesitate to contact
