SEND

Following on from the changes made over the last few years to many areas within the SEND department, we look forward to continually refining these  changes and slowly implementing even more improvements. It has been wonderful to work in close collaboration with our parents and children and receive feedback on the areas that matter most. 

At Northgate we offer a  support group called  Stepping Stones run by our SEND parent representative,  Mrs Haslam .  The group offers support, signposting and advice for any parent/ carer of a child at Northgate with additional learning needs.

If you are a parent of a child with SEND and would like to be added to the Stepping Stones mailing list please email Mrs Haslam at: steppingstonesnorthgate@outlook.com

Further information regarding the support that is available to parents and carers is outlined below:
