Special Educational Needs (SEND)

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEND)

This page provides information on how provision for Special Educational Needs and Disability is implemented at Aston St Mary’s School.

OUR SEN CO-ORDINATOR

My name is Mrs Dean, and I am the school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator, or SENCO. I took on the SENCO role in 2014 (the year of publication of the new SEND Code of Practice).

I currently teach in Reception class for 3 days a week and in Danes class (years 5 and 6) for a morning. 

If you have any questions relating to Special Educational Needs, please do not hesitate to phone the school on 01438 880212 to leave me a message or send an email to the school email address at admin@astonmarys.herts.sch.uk addressed to me and I will get back in touch.

Thank you for your support!
