Special Needs & Inclusion
Helmsley School is an inclusive school which works hard to ensure all children receive the best possible education. For some children, this may mean that some additional support or help may be needed. This could be in the form of additional activities such as interventions or catch-up work or it could mean we look for additional support from other professionals such as speech therapy or an enhanced mainstream school. You can find details of what we offer in our SEN Information report and School SEND Policy below.
In some cases the Local Authority may offer additional support and you can find details of this local offer by clicking here.
Key Contacts and information
If you have any concerns or questions your child’s class teacher is often best place to help initially and on a day to day basis.
Our SENCo, who oversees the provision for students with additional needs alongside the Headteacher and the SEN Trustee is Dr Carolyn Williams and she can be contacted by email at email@example.com or by phone on 01439 771665.
