Welcome to SEND at School 360

As an inclusive school we pride ourselves in welcoming and providing for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We believe in an inclusive approach whereby every child is able to achieve success by being able to access and broad and balanced curriculum. This means School 360 will aim to support pupils to overcome barriers to learning and make special provisions to meet their individual needs.
