"No pupil misses out on anything the school offers. Teachers identify pupils with SEND early...ensures that these pupils learn alongside their classmates."

(OFSTED, March 2022).


Parent Quotes

"I have 2 children that attend Burradon with different needs. Staff are amazing and go above and beyond in order to cater for their individual needs. Communication from staff to parents is great. I find between the SENCO and headmistress that things are brainstormed and acted upon quickly and with the child’s best interest at heart. The SEND provision here is brilliant and have various different ways to help each child. Overall, brilliant."

"From the first time I asked for support, all the way to diagnosis and beyond, I have had so much support. No question has been too daft and if not known, someone will find out. There are no judgements just support."

"I find that the SEND Department within our school is fantastic. They communicate everything well, from what they are planning to put into place for an EHCP or help they are providing our child. I feel that the school has helped in many ways especially through SEND, which I feel we might not have gained in another school."
