Special Educational Needs

Here at Damers First School we strive to nurture an inclusive community of respectful, collaborative learners who are encouraged to constantly achieve their very best. We empower all learners to make valuable contributions both locally and globally and to enjoy and benefit from a lifelong love of learning.

In supporting every person here at Damers we aim to actively remove barriers to ensure every child makes the most of their journey through their time both academically, socially and emotionally.

Rachel Nesbitt, Assistant Headteacher is the SENCo and is responsible for ensuring provision for children with SEN allows full participation in all the exciting opportunities we have to offer.  This may involve identifying, assessing and planning for needs and developing support programmes to meet those needs and break down any barriers to learning.

Miss Nesbitt is also the lead for our Complex Communication Base (CCN).
