Inclusion and SEND

Our Inclusion Team


I am Helen Nazarko, the SENCO and Leader of the Inclusion Team. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive, nurturing, kind and supportive school. We have a large SEND community which we highly value and feel is such a strength of our school.
We offer a wide range of additional learning support and intervention to support all areas of need.

We have a very highly skilled Senior Learning Mentor who leads our Nurture provision and highly experienced TAs who support with Literacy difficulties and speech and language needs. We also have a very experienced (and super lovely) Child Welfare Officer in our Inclusion Team who offers support for families.

We are very much supported by the Brighton and Hove Inclusion Support Service (BHISS) who support individual children, class teachers and lead whole school training. 

Building relationships with the children is really at the heart of what we do, we know that we all need to feel connected and supported to achieve our best. We work closely with our families to ensure that we are working as a team to support the children to reach their full potential.

We warmly welcome visitors so please do give us a call to arrange a visit soon. If your child has any additional needs, please let us know so that I can meet with you on your visit.
