The following is a list of Resources and Interventions that school use to support our pupils.


In the folders below, you will find a bank of resources that may be useful to support your child's specific learning needs. 


SEMH Resources                            Literacy Resources                      Maths Resources





We have teaching assistants trained in many interventions.  These interventions support our pupils in many different ways.  If you feel your child would benefit from some specific support, please speak to your child's class teacher or contact me directly to discuss your concerns further. 


We have two members of staff trained in ELKLAN: Mrs. P Johnson & Mrs. F Hattersley.  Mrs Johnson supports Speech and Language across the school.  This is her full time role.  If you feel your child has difficulties in this area please email me and I can ensure your child's needs are reviewed and supported within school.

If you need any further support, I am here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office number or directly on my email address above.

Mrs. J. O'Keefe
