Meet the Team

Mrs Kirsty Taylor – SENDCO

My role in school is to oversee the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEND policy and SEND information report. I support the identification of children with special educational needs and ensure that pupils on the SEND register are effectively supported within school. I work with lots of external agencies to access the correct support specific to the individual needs of the pupil and of course communicate with parents as and when appropriate. I ensure that the school keeps records of all pupils with SEND up to date and monitor that the pupils are being supported appropriately in the classroom whatever their level of need or disability.

Mrs Clare Valpy – Speech and Language Support

I am based in the Phoenix room in school but work with children in their classrooms too. My role is to support children with developing their speech and language needs. I work closely with the NHS speech therapists who assess the children in school. I have regular contact with the parents to keep them involved in the process and track the children’s progress accordingly. 
During the school day I run a variety of intervention for pupils on a 1:1 basis and in small groups. We use programmes that we have embedded into our practice to best support the pupils in school such as Talk Boost.
