A proud member of

SEND and Inclusion

At Lee Brigg Infant School we support all our children to enable them to achieve at school.

 

Excellent teaching is vital and high quality learning experiences provide children with the opportunity to learn new skills, acquire knowledge develop their independence and a love of learning.

 

We recognise that there are occasions where further additional support may be needed to enable our children to reach their goals.

 

Our SEND Policy can also be found on our policies page.

We pride ourselves on our inclusive ethos where the needs of individual learners are at the centre of their provision.
