Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), and Inclusion

Lanner is an inclusive school that welcomes all children. We aim to inspire our pupils with a rich, diverse and hands on curriculum. Our inclusive ethos means we value each and every individual child and family and have high expectations of everyone in our care.

Our dedicated staff personalise learning in order to meet the needs of all children in our care. But at times, children may require additional support, either short or long term, to make progress and fulfill their potential. Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Mrs Caroline Dinham, is passionate about supporting children and their families to ensure that individual needs are met, and your child can thrive and enjoy their learning. Please do make an appointment to see her if you need any help or advice; by working together we can provide the best support for your child.
