SEN Library

We are delighted to launch our SEN library. We have a number of books that have been donated to us and we decided that it would be useful for parents to be able to borrow these useful items, as well as staff having access to them.

If you would like to borrow a book, please contact the school office in the usual way. The book will be sourced and put in your child's book bag. Please return it back to the school office within one calendar month so that other people can also benefit.
