Meet our SENCo's


Meet our Special Educational Needs


Mrs Karen McArdle, SENCo and Specialist Provision for Leaning teacher and Miss Pauline Downey, Deputy SENCo and P3 teacher.

The overall responsibility for managing SEN provision resides with the board of governors and principal of the school. However, the board of governors has delegated responsibility to co-ordinate the provision for pupils with special educational needs to Mrs Karen McArdle SENCo and Miss Pauline Downey, deputy SENCo.

We are deeply committed to supporting our SEN children, school staff and parents. We work closely with class teachers, adult assistants and external agencies to identify, support and monitor pupil needs.
