SEND Support at Arunside

1. Help For You

Mrs Hadden co-ordinates the support and provision for all children across the school who have special educational needs or disabilities and is ably supported by Mrs Victoria Hills, Deputy SENCo.

West Sussex County Council SEND ‘Local Offer’

The intention is to offer choice, transparency and information for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally.
