Our Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCo) are Mrs Akhtar, our Headteacher and Mrs Abigail Westerman, teacher. Both Mrs Akhtar and Mrs Westerman support the teachers and teaching assistants if a child has, or may have, a need that impacts on their learning. They are available in school during the week and they work with children, staff and professionals to help ensure that all children at Shelley First School get the very best we can give them.
