SEND at Millfield
We believe that ALL children, whatever their abilities, have an entitlement to an inclusive, accessible, broad and balanced curriculum tailored to their individual needs. Millfield School places great importance on meeting the needs of ALL children in the school and recognises that some children will require additional help to access the curriculum and to fully participate in learning.
If you have any questions or queries regarding SEND please contact Mrs Buck, our school SENDCO, on 01543 452513. The following policies and reports provide key information about SEND at Millfield:
