Welcome to the SEND area (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)
Here at Harvey Road we support ‘Special Educational Needs’ in a variety of ways. How we support your child depends on their individual needs. Our vision is that all children, no matter what support they may need, will make progress and achieve to the best of their ability.
Our pupils will be encouraged to challenge themselves, develop independent strategies and become the most efficient learner possible. Neurodiversity is celebrated and children’s strengths are identified and nurtured to ensure pupils have a positive self-image.
For a more comprehensive guide to how we support SEND please see our parent leaflet.
