Park Brow Community School believes that every child should reach their full potential. It is our intention, that all children, with the help of parents/carers, are treated as individuals and receive a happy and relevant learning experience.

It is through the school and the parents working together as a partnership that the needs of all children are best served. It is through this partnership with the help of the children that this policy was developed, and is available on the school website or on request.

Miss Swinburn is the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities co-ordinator and Deputy Head Teacher. Miss Swinburn is responsible for managing and co-ordinating the provision provided by the school and outside agencies to support children with special needs.

The Inclusion Governors are Mrs. M. Spreadbury , Mrs A. Truesdale, Mrs C. Seddon and Miss J Connell who are available to speak to before Governors meetings.

The Local Offer for Knowsley outlines Local Authority Expectations and provision for SEND.
